Summertime kayaking and exploration of the
lower Keys backcountry.

Camping on a sandbar shoal and paddling the Barracuda, Marvin and the Snipe Keys.
One great aspect of a sandbar is that since it is surrounded by water and there’s no vegetation, there are absolutely no bugs to deal with. On the flip side, it’s hot under the summer sun, so it helps to bring your own shade in the form of an umbrella or a Sombrero. If you decide to work on your tan, don’t forget to flip over.
You wouldn’t want to go home half baked!
As luck would have it, this summer trip occurred near the full moon and the tidal ranges were at the extremes for the Keys! The little sandbar shoal was just about underwater during the daytime high tide, and conversely the daytime low left the seabed exposed almost as far as the eye could see. The “top” of this shoal was smaller than a typical living room. The shape of the high ground “living room” was an interesting contoured triangle type shape that is often found repeated in nature.
The graceful curve reminded me somewhat of the pediment shapes commonly seen in Neoclassical architecture!
