Caution: Shameless beach promotion.
In an effort to quit taking our beautiful beach for granted I made the trek, a whopping 3 miles to the beach to catch the sunset last night.
It's the height of tourist season, so it wasn't as easy as it sounds. There's only one road to Bonita Beach and I wasn't the only one with this brilliant idea.
My beach of choice is at the south end of Barefoot Beach, the state park with the toroise preserve. It's a great park with restroom and shower facitilites, a snack bar, kayak and canoe rentals and of course the gopher tortoises are everywhere. It's a gopher tortoise preserve. This park is handicap accessible, also, so it's easy to also drag a wagon, stroller and various beach equipment to water's edge.
