North Jetty - Nokomis Florida

The sun lured us out for another mini-bike ride today.  There are quite a few places within 20 or so miles of the house, but one of our favorites is the North Jetty.  There are several cuts where you can go from the Intracoastal Waterway and the Gulf of Mexico.  This one has a long jetty and a park on both sides of the cut.
Lots of people coming out for a day on the beach now that we are fully into "the season".
Looking across the cut to the south jetty, we watched the dolphins frolicking amongst the boats going in and out to the Gulf.

Fishermen of all shapes and sizes:

Most were having success today:
Flounder for the bottom fishermen
Spanish Mackerel
Little Blue Heron
A whole tree full of Pelicans
The Jetty is a great place for looking for shells also.
