No deep insights at this stop. No pithy quotes. Not really any interesting people talked to. Just our nicest campsite yet right on the water with some great park wildlife to point the camera at.
This park sneaks up on you. The drive in takes you through a pretty typical beachfront area with large hotels, kitschy trinket shops, and local clubs - mostly closed for the season. Then almost without warning you enter the gates of St. Andrews and instantly you get a glimpse of what the area looked like before greedy developers started serving the interests of beach-going tourists.
We intended this just as an overnighter, but seeing a buck just off the parking lot while MsBoyink made the arrangements convinced us that an extra night would be needed. We scored a great waterfront spot, close to restrooms and showers, and (evidently) on the deer’s path for an evening stroll.
I finally got a chance to play with some long-exposure photography with the DSLR. Data and I experimented with some manual shutter releases and “painting” objects in the frame with a flashlight. My large LED worked to light up boats anchored offshore, and for closer up work a small penlight worked better.
