And just beyond the dunes is a protected area that will be great for open water swimming. There was a lot of activity out there today, jet skis etc, but I think early morning and during the week it should be fine to swim in. Note to self: find out if alligators live there.
I was thinking of all the things from Hawaii that I'm going to miss, and realized that fresh seafood will not be on that list (but buying sushi at the 7-11 will be!).

Looking forward to some sashima (that's how they say it down here) and fried okra tonight. Hopefully I can find some more of that apple pie moonshine!
