SHARE THIS WATERY NATIONAL PARK WITH FRIENDS!
Our country’s 59 national parks are famous for all sorts of amazing ecological and geological edifices, formations, features and landscapes. And usually of a rocky, canyon, mountainous, prairie and sandstone kind. But one of our magnificent national parks is quite aquatic and harboring a wondrous watery world!
Biscayne National Park, located in southern Florida and just south of Miami, preserves Biscayne Bay and its offshore barrier reefs. Unbelievably, 95 percent of the park is water, and the shore of the bay is the location of an extensive mangrove forest. The park covers 172,971 acres (69,999 ha) and includes Elliott Key, the park’s largest island and first of the true Florida Keys, formed from fossilized coral reef. The islands farther north in the park are transitional islands of coral and sand. The offshore portion of the park includes the northernmost region of the Florida Reef, one of the largest coral reefs in the world.
Biscayne National Park actually consists of four interrelated marine ecosystems: mangrove forest, the Bay, the Keys, and the coral reefs. Threatened animals include the West Indian manatee, American crocodile, various sea turtles, and the peregrine falcon. You can be sure when the 59 VETERANS PROJECTS is visiting this watery world, along with veterans we’ll be teaching 4K and VR videograhy and photography we will definitely have plenty of watercraft, surfboards, and our fins and scuba gear with us!
We can’t wait to be sharing the company of our military veterans along this watery trail and many others…as we ascend the summit together!

It might be Friday, but there was no way I would or could let this week go by without acknowledging and giving homage to the supreme loss of the incomparable and supreme singer-songwriter, performer and guitarist Prince. He had many outstanding albums, thus numerous hit songs–songs that are timeless and will ever remain so. To compile a true list of all of them, we would be here for quite a spell! So what I’ve done is include my top five faves by Prince Rogers Nelson. Give a listen. You ought to hear something astounding and beautiful and which you may not have heard before. For adding new beauty to one’s life, I do believe, is a princely goal.
