Sebastian Inlet

We arrived at Sebastian Inlet State Park on Wednesday, Jan. 25, only about 2 hours east of Highlands Hammock. Our campground is on the banks of the inlet which is a popular fishing area, both from boats and shore.

 We have been to the beach a couple of times which is also very popular for surf fishing.

Although hard to see in this photo, the fishing people have elaborate "fishing wagons" with multiple poles, tackle, gear, bait, coolers etc. that can travel across the sand or onto the fishing piers

We spent the day with Trudy and Bob Wahrenburg (from North Farm and Sebastian FL). We toured Sebastian and visited the Mel Fisher treasure museum. In 1713 and 1733 two deadly hurricanes sunk Spanish treasure fleets returning to Spain near Sebastian. Although some of the gold and silver was salvaged, a lot remained on the bottom of the sea. Mel Fisher was a diver turned treasure hunter, who devoted his life to finding lost treasures.

We will NOT be posting any erotica on this blog!
