Default Cape San Blas, Florida

Earlier in the week, Connie and I decided to drive over to St. Joe Peninsula State Park on Cape San Blas. Been a while since we've walked the beach there so we decided it was due.

Actually it was a lot nicer than we had been expecting or remembered. The water looked crystal clear on both the Gulf and bay sides. And it wasn't nearly as windy as we remembered it being in the past. We always referred to the area as "Cape Sand Blast" for that reason.

Anyway, lots of sealife, which is a good sign to me. Not sure what that fish is in the video, but both Connie and I commented that it looked like a hammerhead shark. Doesn't show up well in the video, but it sure looked that way in person. Lots of hermit crabs and sea urchins. I haven't seen sea urchins for a while now. They used to be real common in Lemon Bay off of Stump Pass near Englewood, but been years since I've seen any there. Been a long time since we've been there, so I really can't compare now with before the BP oil spill and corexit dumping.

But heck, I'd be tempted to do some snorkeling there later this summer. The water certainly looks clear enough, and with the amount of wildlife around, it doesn't appear to be anything toxic in the water affecting them that I can determine. But I'll be honest, I can't say I'm all that thrilled thinking about about stepping on one of those sting rays. Just looking at the barb on that dead one on the beach had me imagining that sucker sunk into my calf. Ouchie.... I'll bet that HAS to hurt!
