RECREATION

On Honeymoon Island one form of RECREATION is cast net fishing. This young man was a novice at throwing his net and by the time I decided to make an image he was on his way back to shore.

The island is a state park that was developed in 1939 as a honeymoon destination. The original name was Hog Island – doesn’t sound so romantic does it? There are nature and birding trails, swimming, fishing, shelling, picnic areas and food concessions. The beach is difficult to walk because it was mostly crushed shells and course sand.
