First off, big thanks to angrysparrow for moving this thread to its appropriate forum!
For those who don't know, Fort Desoto is located near St. Pete Beach, FL. It has been rated america's best beach a few times over the years and is only about a 30min drive from me. It is rarely crowded and has plenty to explore, a true day trip paradise. Here is a shot of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, also a record holder, from the park.
I pulled into the park around 10am and promptly parked, pulled out my camera and walked to the beach. It felt like a late spring day here on January 8th
I drove down to a picnic area on the water and began my search for the right set of trees with the best view.
This area was fairly exposed and the hammock tends to draw attention, making taking a much needed nap a little difficult so I packed up and headed off into a trail to find a quieter place to rest my eyes for a bit.
After a short walk through the trees I came upon a nice small clearing with its own little beach and whadya know, two perfect trees!

Now I had planned on setting up in a few more locations throughout the park but it seems once my head hit the hammock I was done for!
I threw a water bottle in the eno pocket and slung it over me so I was in "cocoon" mode and let the sound of the gentle waves and slight sway take me away. I woke up at 4pm, completely reminded why I love doing this
Hope you enjoyed the pictures and if anyone wants to hang there sometime, shoot me a message!
