Cape Canaveral National Sea Shore is a great place to see all the natural wild life in a huge area preserved from all the massive development that exists around most of Florida’s coast line.

Viero, Florida has a smaller sanctuary but just as impressive with the diversity of wildlife and protected waters…

Hammock State Park is located about an hour east of the gulf cost.  Its seclusion makes it a great place to see a habitat that is a true reflection of what Florida was like before the 1600’s.  The live Oak with Spanish moss is a contrast as I sketched it in the middle of the cattle and orange fields that dominate much of the interior of the state.  The park has nice hiking trails and a board walk to experience the Cypress in the swamps.  The roads have a dedicated bike and walking paths and there is a museum dedicated to the Civilian Corps that created all these great parks across the US.
