Hobe Sound National Wildlife Refuge – Hobe Sound, FL

I happened to pass this place as I was driving south on Highway 1 toward Jupiter. The refuge is just north of Jonathan Dickinson State Park along the east side of the Indian River.

There’s a decent-sized parking lot with a nature center and bathrooms, but we were there too late to go inside. So, we went straight toward the trail leading to the river. 

        

Once at the sand, my current love interest and I nestled together on a rustic bench under the mangroves and took in the scenery.   There were very few people around. This shit was just a nice ass time, plain and simple.

 

After holding hands on the bench for a bit  like a couple of lovestruck fools we explored more of the refuge’s trails. It was a relaxing and interesting walk with varying terrain and elevation. Elevation by Florida standards, that is (i.e., sandy hills).   

        

According to the map the refuge is pretty dang big, so we only saw a small part of it. We will definitely go back to explore more and spend more time by the water.
