Trip to Black's Island
Just in case any of you out there think that we don't have any other hidden jewels along this coast than St. George, check out these photos of Black's Island.
Black's Island is a privately owned and developed island out in the bay off Port St. Joe. It is only accessible by boat, and at the invitation of the owner.
We went out with the decidedly non-glamorous goal of taking a closer look at his advanced technology wastewater treatment facility, which took him years to get approved and installed, but is very leading edge - we're exploring doing something like this on St. George.
Anyway, as a bonus, the day turned gorgeous, and we got to visit a beautiful colony of white pelicans (our usual population is brown pelicans, much smaller). We did not get close enough to disturb them, of course, so the pictures are a little distant, but I think you can see the magic in these glorious birds even from this angle.
