Washington Oaks Gardens State Park: Part 2

Some photos today of the Intracoastal waterway side of Washington Oaks State Park.  The Intracoastal is here connected to the Atlantic Ocean via Mantanzas Inlet just north of the park, so the water is mostly salt/brackish.  It is not uncommon to see dolphin in the Intracoastal.

Navigational marker for boaters:

White egret flies along over the middle of the Intracoastal, perhaps hunting for an early lunch.

The southern tip of a narrow island that lies in the middle of the Intracoastal just west of the park.  The dark row of trees in the distance is the true mainland of Florida (and is, at that spot, actually part of another park that we will visit later).
