|Not much doubt which side to pass this buoy.|
Since we re anchored in Pelican Bay, we decided to dinghy in to the Caya Costa State Park for a visit. We packed our swimsuits, water bottles and towels into The Ernie T and motored over. They have a nice boat dock to tie up to and a friendly volunteer met us right away to see if we wanted a golf cart ride across to the gulf side. Heck yes we want a ride! It was 93 degrees and the sun was scorching.
The park has rustic cabins and campsites available along with bathrooms and basic showering facilities. We walked the shoreline and only saw one other couple. We donned our swimsuits and simply plunked down into the clean cool gulf water. If you ever get a chance, check out this wonderful Florida treasure.
