Exploring Long Point Park
Long Point Park sits on a small island in the Indian River, not far from Sebastian Inlet which allows access to the Atlantic Ocean. Our campground filled in on Friday and Saturday with families, mostly boaters and fishermen. Ed & I took Duncan and Lassy and did some geocaching in the park, which allowed us to explore. We crossed a small footbridge that took us to Scout Island with tenting only campsites.
This view from the bridge captured some boaters returning to the dock.
This area would be awesome to go kayaking too. I'd love to see more of the dolphins and pelicans that we've been able to catch sight of from shore.
Today, Sunday, the park emptied out. It's so peaceful that we've decided to stay another four days. Tomorrow, we've arranged to move to a direct waterfront site. We'll be here until Friday, when we are scheduled to move to Titusville to catch a space shuttle launch.
