Note to self; be sure to check the tides before you head to Green Key for the sunrise. It was just dumb luck that the tide was low the last time I went there. Low tide lets you walk out far enough that the shrubbery isn’t blocking your view. But this morning all I worried about was how warm and muggy the morning was even at 6:30 AM, so I doused myself liberally with bug spray and headed out. And sure enough, there was color in the sky, but no view, which sent me scrambling to the nearby bridge where I like to take pictures also. Got there just in the nick of time.
I was really hoping to see the spoonbills at Green Key today also. It wasn’t to be. Next time there is low tide I’ll try again.
