Oh, the Place I Have Visited in 2017
Big Talbot Island
Big Talbot Island State Park is a Florida State Park located on Big Talbot Island, 20 miles northeast of downtown Jacksonville on A1A North and immediately north of Little Talbot Island State Park.
Massive century-old live oaks, cedars and palms growing on the dune bluff fall onto the beach below as Big Talbot’s dunes naturally erode into the sea. Weathered by the sun and sea, their gargantuan skeletal remains lie in eerie rest on Boneyard Beach. Like driftwood, they are a protected resource that offers not only unrivaled beauty, but are a source of shelter and food for coastal wildlife.
Walking the beaches of Big Talbot Island is a surreal experience. Due to the rapid rate of erosion, layers of hard-pan soil are exposed creating unique sand formations along the shore that resemble cooled lava.
Big Talbot and Little Talbot are two of only a few remaining undeveloped barrier islands within Florida.
Be blessed and be blessing!
