What comes to mind when you hear that name? Does it cause your mind to wonder? Do you picture something like this?
Deserted. Beautiful. Amazing.
This was where we spent one of our days in Florida. It took a bit of work to get there though. The boat needed to be taken to the water a day in advance. The boys took on this job.
Part of the fun was being able to drive the boat. They very graciously allowed all of our boys to have a try at driving it.
The beautiful day gave way to an amazing sunset.
The next morning we headed out, in shifts, to make our way to the island.
Still wondering about where we went? An uninhabited island in Nassau Sound that is a sanctuary for a variety of birds.
It was beautiful.
There was very little vegetation. Some sea grasses on the few sand dunes. Lots of low water in the center of the island that was like one giant tide pool (the Eastern Coast variety).
It was a great place to walk and look for shells. Just look at the shells!

Plus this shell from a horseshoe crab.
I like this shot with the bird nearby.
While I was walking the island I watched my sons. (This photo reminded me a lot of one that I posted yesterday of Rebecca and Eliana.) Isaiah following in Christopher's footsteps. I'm thankful for the example that Christopher is to his brothers!
Everyone enjoyed riding in the boat.
After a lovely day, it was finally time to leave. Thankful for pictures and memories of this special day with family and friends.
