Paddleboarding the Indian River Lagoon

We had originally planned to spend the day at Fort Pierce Inlet State Park, however an increasing onshore wind inspired us to change plans at the last minute and spend a restful afternoon along the eastern bank of the Indian River Lagoon in Jensen Beach.

There was a steady stream of mullet heading southbound along the shore, which provided for plenty of action to watch while cruising along the much calmer water just off the shore. The ability to have a picnic next to the mangroves was an added treat.
