A friend of ours is a pilot. He happened to be out flying the other day while my son and I were boating. Although he never found us out on the river, he did share these photos with my son and I.
It’s always fun to see a place you recognize from the air! In this first photo, the Edgewater boat ramp is visible right in the center of the image. It’s that rectangular patch that juts out into the water. That is the main channel of the Indian River, which is part of the ICW (Intracoastal Waterway). Straight out from the ramp is all the backwater area where we usually go to fish, and beyond that is the ocean.
I don’t recognize where they were when this next photo was taken. I suspect they were flying further north.
We landed our boat on an island and my son got this panorama photo while I did some beach combing. This is where I came across the pink crown conch shell. As I walked the beach area, I came across a cross in memory of someone named Owen. We were out on a Thursday and had the place totally to ourselves. We used the Riverbreeze boat ramp, which is south of Edgewater.
