Stepping back in time, we take a brief look at Ft. DeSoto in Pinellas County Florida. I know I post a lot about Florida, but it is one of my favorite vacation places, and Ft. DeSoto is a "must visit" every time we go.
Last year we were there in November, somewhat later than normal, and it was unseasonably cool that week. As usual we headed out to Ft. DeSoto for the afternoon, only this time instead of fishing we rented bikes. This was something we had wanted to do for years, but it was always too hot. Now was our chance! The temperature was in the 70s and there was a nice breeze.
Practically everywhere you can go by car, there is a separate bike lane. We had a grand time, and put in several miles of tooling around, stopping for lunch at the snack bar next to the Gulf Pier.

Ft. DeSoto has something for everyone including swimming, boating, wind surfing, fishing, picnic areas, bike and kayak rental, and offers great photo opportunities. There are also several snack bars and a gift shop.
I am looking forward to my next visit and more biking and fishing this fall.
