The house we rented in Stone Harbor is just a block from the dunes, beach and marshlands of Stone Harbor Point. My daily walk included the nearly two-mile one-way hike (at low-tide) to the point – the southern most tip of the Seven Mile Island. Part of the trail skirts this marshland that separates the bay from the ocean. I love this habitat. It is teeming with waterfowl – egrets, great blue herons – and is an important bird sanctuary.
