Jensen Island

An uneventful day motoring almost 38 miles down the ICW brought us to our evenings anchorage, Jensen Island.  Gary and I had never anchored here before and it was fun to check it out.  After traveling on the boat for 7 ½ hours, it was nice to go ashore and explore the park that is south of the two bridges at Jensen Island.
The first place found to possibly land our dinghies had a no trespassing sign posted, so we went further up the beach and found a lovely shelter with benches that invited us to shore.  The small park had nice walking trails through a hammock with occasional informational signs along the way.  There was an Indian camp, an enclosed area inhabiting owls (we didn’t see any), a place where they bagged oysters used to facilitate new oyster beds, and an extended boardwalk through the mangrove swamp.
The walk through the park was the highlight of our first full day cruising with Ed, Cheryl and Molly.
