Friday, April 22nd Pinellas County, FL 90* & Sunny
There are many bridges connecting all of the land around this area of Tampa Bay and the Gulf.
Today I spent the afternoon at Fort DeSoto County Park. It is a chain of five interconnected islands, or keys, providing 1,136 acres of beautiful parkland and beaches in Pinellas County.
I missed the ferry ride to Egmont Key as it only departs once or twice a day in the morning.
You do not need to have a fishing license to fish off of the piers in this county park. The birds were anxiously awaiting any dropped fish. I also saw dolphins - swimming near the pier. I managed to get a partial picture. They were too fast for me to get a good picture.
I walked along the beach and walked the 1,000 foot Gulf Pier and 500' Bay Pier, people watching and watching for dolphins.
I found a shady picnic table to rest for awhile and enjoy a large glass of lemonade, before walking back along the beach to the parking lot. A very enjoyable day.
