In Bokeelia, FL on the northern tip of Pine Island, there is little to see and do. All coast land is private, except for the parking lot to Captain Con's Seafood Restaurant. The cars have a wonderful view of Gasperilla Sound. The long piers are private unless you want to fish, for $8 you can fight for a place at the end of the pier. If you want to take pictures, rent a boat.
With a Camera and maybe with the eyes, you can see around or through solid objects. The sun is covered by palm fronds, yet we can see it clearly. Pretty special. This is Ponce de Leon Park named for Juan Ponce de León, who led the first Spanish expedition to Florida in 1513-as legend has it-in search of the "fountain of youth." Next to the park is the Peace River Wildlife Center - a non-profit wildlife rehabilitation facility tucked neatly into the mangroves overlooking Charlotte Harbor at Ponce de Leon Park.
