Jetty Park at Port Canaveral, Florida

Good morning,

We've been sailing out of Port Canaveral aboard Freedom of the Seas for five years now. 
At the very end of the channel on the right side while sailing out is the Jetty Park where you can fish, camp, watch birds, take pictures, and just relax.  Look very carefully in the center of the image above and you can see a cruise ship in port to begin a cruise with a new group of guests.
There are some great facilities for kids,
and administration building,
 and lots of hunks of granite along the shore line. 
 There's that handsome man I so often see when I am out taking pictures.  Explorer of the Seas is in the upper left corner of the image.  Freedom of the Seas will be tied up in the same spot the following day.
 We saw these two men set up their fishing gear.  We didn't stay around to see if they caught anything.  Maybe actually catching something wasn't important.  ;)
 The wood jetty walkway extends far out into the sea.  When ships sail out there are people lining the rail here cheering and waving to those cheering and waving from the ships.  It's such fun!

More images of the Jetty Park to come!

Lois -- we love Jetty Park. Its a fun place to spend the afternoon and to watch the cruise ships sail out--(all the while wishing we were on one!)

Thanks for posting these photos -- reminds me of some of the good times I have had there in the past...
