The Florida State Park Plein Air Painting Tour – Painting each of Florida's State Parks on location
We arrived at Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park on another sunny warm Florida day. The park is pretty with Australian pines along the beach side, and mangroves along the bay side. We drove down to the very last parking area of the park closest to the pass. The pass was busy with fishermen on the shore trying their luck in the moving current, and many boaters were buzzing by. Along the beach side, there were many sunbathers enjoying the sun and surf. I walked along the trail to the beach and a black snake crossed my path! I set up my painting gear to paint the sandy path to the beach and as I painted I heard rustling behind me and saw another snake slither by. Then a few minutes later another snake crossed the path in front of me! Either this snake was circling me or there were three different snakes. If the sunbathers only knew there was a snake just behind them I’m sure I would’ve had the beach all to myself!
