Florida Nature Reserve
« on: 22:43:36, 18/06/12 »
 
Robinsons Preserve is not a jam but a lovely preservation area on the coast, south of St Petersburg and close to the idyllic Anna Maria Island.  Very flat area but just as well as it was baking hot
 
 
Map of area :

 
Introduction to some of the inhabitants....Im going back in the car

 
Rules of the area - and they were followed - could do with something similar here - maybe they are more civilised over there

 
Trails consisted of levelled small rocks and broken shells and elevated boardwalks





Observation tower gave good views of the area - saw quite a few flying fish from there but never quick enough to get a snap of them




 
Coconuts - not quite ready

 
How the other half live

Absolutely tons of wildlife around - particularly in & around the water - the 2nd bird is quite a rare visitor apparently


First outing for the Five Fingers

Looks very nice, reminds me of Merritt Island - the nature reserve around the Kennedy Space Centre.
