October 8 2007,
Went paddling yesterday and lost my camera to rain. Bought a new camera last night and we decided to test the new camera out at Merritt Island NWR. At least here I can protect the camera at the very first sign of rain.
Drove Black Point Drive a couple of times and BioLab Drive once. We saw a good number of birds but not much else. After spending the whole day in the refuge we only saw one American Alligator. And of that one we only saw the head and that was late in the day. I guess they were all hiding due to the heat.
Merritt Island NWR is always a pleasant way to spend the day. The only real disappointing item was the visitor center being closed. We tried during the hours on their sign but the gate was locked.
