Our final stop on the way to St. Augustine was a little town on Ochlockonee Bay, called Panacea. We had great site on the water with gorgeous sunset views. We are now settled into our spot north of St. Augustine, and looking forward to no more long driving days for a few months!!!
Our campground on Ochlockonee Bay (sunset header photo is a view from the camp site)
One of the highlights of Panacea was a surprise manatee encounter on a walk near the campground. There were at least half a dozen hanging out in this creek just inland from the bay.
We saw this young buck at nearby Bald Point. He was clearly smart enough to be hanging out in the safety of the state park during hunting season.
Black Vulture shopping the flats at low tide.
Otter Pond, which was false advertising as far as I am concerned. There was not an otter to be seen.
