Guana Tolomato Matanzas National Estuarine Reserve - 3/09/14

When our plans for a beach walk didn't work out due to the woman's beach volleyball championship at St. Augustine Beach and the resulting traffic we went to plan B.

We instead visited the Guana Tolomato Matanzas National Estuarine Research Reserve - that ended being a real delight. It encompasses approximately 73,000 acres along 30 miles of the coast of Florida near St. Augustine. Estuaries serve as nurseries of the sea providing habitat to produce a wide array of marine life.  We hiked trails from between the Guana and Tolomato Rivers and the coast (Atlantic Ocean). This place is dog friendly, so Sadie had a great time exploring the area with us.

Here are some photos:

And check out this swamp guy we encountered
