Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge

Manny's restaurant in Flagler Beach was our stop for breakfast with the bikers. We always seem to arrive in Florida for Bike Week!

Merritt Island is a wildlife haven. This 140,000 acre refuge shares a common boundary with NASA's Kennedy Space Center. There are over 500 species of wildlife. We slowly drove a seven-mile self guided auto tour through salt and freshwater marshes. Every place we looked we were in awe and clicking away with our cameras.
