Sebastian Inlet Bridge, Florida
Top photo is a shot to try to take in as much of the bridge over the Sebastian Inlet as I could. I'm standing on a jetty that sticks out into the Atlantic just a little bit and am looking back toward the bridge, and mainland Florida beyond that.
The bottom photo is where I got down near the base of the bridge on the north side of it, and took a picture of the foundations, the big rocks, and the beautiful water with the shadows cast by the bridge. There many, many people there fishing, and those two guys in the picture climbed down onto that pillar, where they weren't supposed to go.
This is about fifteen miles, as the crow flies, from where I live. Thirty miles to drive there. It is the closest access for boats to the Atlantic Ocean from where I live. It's called Sebastian Inlet. I don't own a boat, but it's a really neat place to visit. There's a small visitor's center and museum, but I didn't go in that day.
There is a Florida State Park at Sebastian Inlet that takes in both sides of the cut through the barrier island. I went there this past Sunday afternoon to take in some of the beautiful weather, and to take some photos with my new lens.
It was nice to wander around and there were lots and lots of birds; storks, pelicans, egrets, cranes.
