Lagoon and the Gulf

The area around Johnson beach, looking back towards Fort Mcree.    I think as beaches go, this area of the Gulf Islands National Seashore is about perfect.   I unfortunately don't get down there as much as I'd like and never get down there in good light.    

I would imagine around 2 AM the Milky Way starts to become visible this time of year - something I hope to go down and try to photograph at some point...

On the south side, you have the Gulf.  It isn't cluttered with Jetski rentals, chairs, condos and swimmer buoys.  You have sand, surf and whatever you carry with you.

On the North side is the Lagoon.   It bends around enough to give you a sense of privacy.   Hermit crabs, shells and sand dollars scatter amongst the gentler surf.
