Gone to See Florida 2013 Road Trip. Day 6: Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge.
I spent the day at the Merritt Island National Refuge, driving the Black Point Wildlife Drive and Biolab road. It is a target rich environment for birds and alligators. Well worth spending the day. Make sure you have mosquito repellant.
Gone to See Florida 2013 Road Trip. Day 5: St. Petersburg and Merritt Island.
I started the day at Fort De Soto park for sunrise. There is a small beach at the end of the road where you can watch the sun rise under the Sunshine Skyway bridge. I then drove across the state to Merritt Island to spend a couple of days at the National Wildlife Refuge.
