Fort De Soto, Boca Ciega Bay

Boca Ciega Bay mangroves
 The toll stop and go sign stayed red as I entered Fort Desoto. The little wrinkle meant the sticker was not being read.  And I had been paying higher, toll by plate rates, since I got the new car

That's a cool photo

Looks like I landed
And walked across a small spit of land in a cove to the Gulf

Long zoom


Rental concession at Solider's Hole 

My nearby launch spot
Walk out on one of the two piers at Fort DeSoto

On shore, not the pier


Time to see the family

Views from the top of the Fort

Don Cesar Hotel

Back to the hotel. 

Walk to the beach in Treasure Island
I was not invited to this fancy to do

I always can find my car.  There is a boat ramp at the north end of Treasure Island. No parking, so I had to drop off the kayak, find a spot in the neighborhood, and walk back.

Past a residential area, into Boca Ciega Bay

And some bird filled islands

Black crowned night herons are sometimes skittish.  Not here.

Sunset break as I waited for dinner

Order up!
Good thing I took the picture as I had no idea, 16 months later, where I ate.
