We always enjoy visiting Sebastian Inlet State Park.  The beach is beautiful, and we never know what we’ll see from the fishing jetty.  More info is at: https://www.floridastateparks.org/park/Sebastian-Inlet

    Love the close up of the school of Mullet, and the little Sanderling two-step!

  2. Excellent photos as usual Pam. I particularly like the black skimmer. I’ve tried many times to get a decent photo but to no avail. I love watching them fish. When I’m watching I say to myself: “What’s the chances that that skimmer will just bump his beak into a fish at exactly the right time?” Obviously, it happens all the time, but it seems counterintuitive to me. ~James

      I agree completely! We are lucky that it is easy to get black skimmer pictures at Sebastian Inlet State Park – especially in winter/spring.
