“A deep sugar sand path along the back dunes of a natural beach.”— Hardin Waddle
What is amazing about this place is the fact that you are getting to see what the natural dunes look like up close. There are lots of native beach shrubs like the beach rosemary and a few stunted live oaks and sand pines. There is some prickly pear cactus and a lot of herbaceous beach plants like beach morning glory and seaside oxeye daisy. This is a rare habitat now due to all of the development along the gulf coast, so this is a special place.
