Everyone loves the sight of deer, right? While there are lots of places to get a look at them in the wild, it's a little less common to see them strolling through the dunes at the beach. This was definitely a cool sighting, and it would be remiss of me to not share it with you.
I've gotten into the habit of taking a walk just before the sun sets wherever we are. On this occasion, I was headed down to the beach via the boardwalk at the park's Atlantic campground loop and spotted this guy to my left. Actually, there were two more deer on the right side of the boardwalk, but they were further back in the dunes. I've been keeping my eyes open for them again, but have yet to make another sighting.
Of course, the dunes are just one spot at Fort Clinch State Park where you can see plenty of deer. The best time seems to be right at dusk. I'd recommend taking a slow drive along the park's main canopy road, where I've seen several others. All in all, Fort Clinch State Park turns out to be a great spot for just about everything, from riding bikes to exploring Florida's history. More on all of that later.
