Crane Point

15 Mar

Today we decided to brave a three mile walk up to the Crane Point Museum and Nature Center. The nature walk through a Florida hammock was very beautiful, and the museum provided a nice history of the Flagler railroad and some of the early settlements in the middle Keys. Good to catch the local history when we can!

Crane park is known for several insects. We didn’t see the bees (apparently two of the colonies up and swarmed off), and the butterfly garden was very empty, but the golden orb spiders were pretty amazing (okay, they are also a tad bit creepy with their webs right over your head).

Nothing satisfies after walking miles like ice cream…and we find every excuse to enjoy local ice cream shops.
