Sebastian Inlet State Park

Wayne and his wife, Julie, visited Sebastian Inlet State Park yesterday, and Wayne shared these photos with us. The park is located in the far south end of Brevard county and has three miles of beaches for surfing, swimming, scuba diving, snorkeling, shelling and sunbathing. Beach wheelchair is available upon request. In addition, there are boat ramps, kayak and canoe rentals, bicycling paths, jetties and bridge catwalks for fishing, full facility camping (see their website for how to make reservations), nature trails, pet camping, picnicking, RV camping, and wildlife watching - whew! Or, you can just relax in Florida's sunshine like these folks are doing.

If you are a visitor to our beaches, you may not be familiar with jetties. According to Merriam-Webster, a jetty is a structure extended into a sea, lake, or river to influence the current or tide or to protect a harbor. Definitions aside, a jetty is a great place to fish or lean against the rail, gaze out over the ocean without getting wet, and contemplate life. This jetty at Sebastian Inlet State Park is a real beauty!
