It surprised me to see this little sandy outcropping at the end of Fort Island Trail Rd in the shadow of the Crystal River nuke plant. Surprising me even more was the delicious variety of somewhat rare shorebirds that have made this little sand spit their home. This is a man made beach, small and clean with nice new bathrooms. It is a moment in time before it is overrun with mankind.Probably this is a human attraction to the "nature coast" of Florida. I sincerely hope it stays just the way it is-- small, out of the way and unadorned.
