Camping

Saw lots of dolphins, birds, and even a shark. The trail through the mangroves is unmarked but easy enough to follow with the app. The trail itself was a little too wide for my liking. At no point do you get tight in the mangroves which I usually like. I camped on Tiger Key which was the best part. There was limited service at gulf coast visitor center then none until I reached Tiger Key. It was about nine miles to the camping spot and it took around five hours. The wind was rough.
