Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park (Key Biscayne) & Miami Skyline / June 2, 2008 : After we left the The Barnacle Historic State Park in Coconut Grove, we headed to Key Biscayne.  We went all the way to the end and into <a href= "http://www.floridastateparks.org/capeflorida/" target="_blank"> <b>Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park</a></b>. The first stop was <a href= "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/No_Name_Harbor_(Key_Biscayne)" target="_blank"> <b>No Name Harbor</a></b>. 

Cape Florida is the home of a historic lighthouse built in 1825 and reconstructed in 1846, the oldest standing structure in Miami-Dade County. Visitors come to the park to sunbathe, swim, and picnic on over a mile of sandy Atlantic beachfront. Biking and kayaking are also popular activities. Anglers can throw in their lines from the seawall along Biscayne Bay for some of the best shoreline fishing in the region.

The Barnacle Historic State Park  (Coconut Grove) / June 2, 2008 : <a href="http://www.floridastateparks.org/TheBarnacle/default.cfm" target="_blank"> <b>The Barnacle Historic State Park</a></b>, in the heart of Coconut Grove, offers a lovely view of Biscayne Bay and of Old Florida. This beautiful house with a whimsical name dates to a quieter time. The Barnacle, built in 1891, offers a glimpse of Old Florida during The Era of the Bay. Situated on the shore of Biscayne Bay, this was the home of Ralph Middleton Munroe, one of Coconut Grove´s most charming and influential pioneers. Munroe's principal passion was designing yachts. As a seaman, civic activist, naturalist, and photographer, Commodore Munroe was a man who cherished the natural world around him. 

A walk into the park passes through a tropical hardwood hammock. In the 1920s, it was representative of the original landscape within the city of Miami. Today, it is one of the last remnants of the once vast Miami Hammock.
