Spotlight on Florida: Blind Pass Park

As a follow up to my last Spotlight on Florida, Blind Pass Beach, I’m continuing with Blind Pass Park. The park is across the street from the beach located on Lemon Bay. The park has a nice playground, a shelter with picnic tables and barbeque grills. The park has launches for canoes and docks for fishing. And don’t forget the wildlife: birds, fish, dolphins, manatees, and turtles.

Spotlight on Florida: Jelks Preserve

Jelks Preserve is teeming with ecological wealth. While hiking the more than eight miles of nature trails you will experience several habitats including oak hammocks, pine flatwoods, wildflowers, wetlands and marshes. The preserve is home to gopher tortoises, swallowtail butterflies and various song birds.
