The state of Florida lies between the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean. The area I have visited is known as the Nature Coast and lies to the east of the state and mainly within the Pinellas, Manatee and Sarasota counties.

The amount and variety of flora, fauna and marine life to be seen here never fails to amaze me and although I have been visiting the area annually for around 10 years now - there is always something new for me to discover!
