Hobe Sound National Wildlife Refuge, Florida

Today’s cycling brought us to the mainland portion of the Hobe Sound National Wildlife Refuge on Hwy. 1 in Florida after crossing over the Jupiter Sound inlet on South Beach Road.

The mainland portion of the refuge protects a section of sand pine scrub environment.

We had stopped there for a bit of a rest after cycling a couple of miles along Hwy. #1. Its parking lot offered a bit of respite from the high speed traffic whizzing past us on the major highway. The refuge offers a couple of hiking trails through the scrub lands and I was hoping to come across a tortoise or two and maybe a Scrub Jay but instead I lucked upon an Osprey eating a meal of fish.

When I arrived back at our truck in the Hobe Sound parking lot, I took one last walk out to the beach to catch the final slanted rays of sunshine as they added depth and definition to the beach scenery.
