A budding angler lands his first fish in Heart Pond. Is there a better place on planet Earth to introduce a young child to the joys of the great outdoors than Brays Island Plantation?

Several manatees have been spotted near the gazebo in Haulover Creek! If you are planning on doing any boating this weekend keep an eye out for them. They are not the most agile creatures and are often injured by boat propellers. Also, please don’t give them any freshwater.
