Hi Toby,

As Noel said, it is a park in SW Florida, off Marco Island. That is a view looking
SSW from the extreme north end of a fairly new sand bar which formed there. There
are strong kiting restrictions, it has a large bird preserve, plus there are private residences.
Enrique with has been working hard to maintain
access here for many years, he also holds the kiteboarding instruction concession at the park.
There is no kiting along the southern 1 1/2 mile of the lagoon in the area of the wildlife preserve.
The point shown is a 2 to 3 mile walk in, depending on the tide and whether you can cut
across the lagoon from the parking lot by foot. These best way is to go in by boat.
