"The history of the Sebastian Inlet area goes back to the end of the last ice age. The barrier islands were formed as sandbars off the coast of the mainland. As vegetation took hold on the sandbars, animals moved in, followed by the first human inhabitants, the Paleo hunters." (Credit: McLarty Treasure Museum)
Tomorrow marks two weeks since I've returned to my favorite spot on the Florida coast & whether I stay longer remains to be seen! While the town of Sebastian sits along the river; the majority of Sebastian that's ocean side is state park and wildlife preserve. Hence, why I love it here.
The barrier island has a number of small towns, but to the north (15 miles) is Melbourne Beach and to the south (9 miles) is Vero Beach. When I head to do errands or need a library, I head north as I don't have to cross a causeway for amenities. While this area continues to grow, there is enough preservation in place to keep its natural beauty somewhat intact!
On sunny days, I rise early to perhaps see the sun come up over the ocean, while I never miss a sunset on the riverfront. On cold or rainy days, there's still much to do, and in fact, this is my third winter here and I still have a few spots to explore.
All the while I'm trying to find a seasonal job which my purse needs but my spirit certainly does not!
