Beach Time at Bahia Honda State Park
Our last day in the Keys, just had to do some time at the beach! The day started out cool and windy, but all was good in that regard by afternoon. The sun was up high and quite warm. Instead of heading for the beach immediately John and I chose to first walk the Silver Palm Trail at the park. The trail forms a loop through a hammock, mangrove area, dune and along the beach. The silver palms along the trail represent one of the greatest concentrations in the state. They are becoming increasingly rare as people illegally remove them from their natural habitat to plant them in residential areas.
