Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge 11-11

Osprey On veteran’s day, my family loaded up and headed over to the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge. It was kind of rainy, kind of windy, and a really long drive for an hour or two of midday shooting.  But we went, and here’s my list.  Also, beware the Pivot bridge ont he Titusville side.  It broke, we had to drive all the way to Oak Hill jsut to turn around back south.
