Today we woke up to warmer temperatures and sunshine. We had breakfast and then got ready to visit Biscayne National Park.
This National Park is 95% water and 5% land.
Most of the activities in this park involve scuba diving or fishing, there are no scenic roads for us to drive, so we will instead take a scenic glass bottom boat ride out to the coral reef. We started out in the visitors center then worked our way down to the dock to meet the boat.
In the channel on the way out to the reef we saw red mangrove trees and cormorants.
The cormorants also like to sit on the channel markers.
At the reef we looked through the glass bottom to see the different corals and fish underneath us. The pictures never turn out very good though.
A pelican flew close to our boat.
I think it is a fairly safe bet that we won’t be rushing back to Biscayne National Park at any time, but if you are a scuba diver, then this would be the park for you to visit. We got our National Park passport stamped and can now add this park to our “parks visited” list.
To see all of our photos from today you can see them on my FLICKR site.
