The view from the tower

Riviera Bay

If you walk the trails at Weedon Island in St. Petersburg FL, be sure to climb the lookout tower. You’ll see islands of mangrove on oyster shell foundations in Riviera Bay with the St. Pete skyline in the background.

Baby osprey

St. Pete natives can hear the plaintive call of the osprey from the beaches to the bay. If you pay attention you can catch one flying off with a fish or a snake in their talons. We saw a mother feeding her young in this nest on the way to Weedon Island.

Be good scouts, leave it like you found it.
