This morning I went to the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge to go down their birding trail (Black Point Drive- one of my favorite places) but it was closed due to flooding! I should have known, things haven't quite recovered from Tropical Storm Fay. Since the trail was closed, I went to the beach instead. I couldn't waste driving an hour to the coast, and I don't regret it- the beach was beautiful and it was really refreshing to be out by the sea. I still saw a lot of birds, too!
