Kayaking the Intercoastal from Big Lagoon State Park

"one misty moisty morning, when cloudy was the weather..."

I camped at Big Lagoon State Park this weekend while visiting my son at UWF. The park is across the intercoastal from Perdido Key. Perdido Key sustained much damage during Ivan but it has been rebuilt with a vengeance. Here are some images from this morning's kayak trip. I crossed the intercoastal between barges. The last one out this morning was loaded with coal. I explored the marshy flats along the Key and crossed back during the incoming tide which was challenging.

This park sustained much damage from Ivan and many of its trees are blown down and have not been cleared. It is up and running though and it was quite full with spring break campers. It has boardwalks all through it running over the marshy flats.
