Howard Beach

The beach that we frequented on our vacation was small and peaceful. It is situated out in the bay, and is connected by a two lane road about 100 yards out. The majority of the people using this state park were elderly, and it wasn't very crowded. The temperature was in the high 90s and one complaint I had was the lack of shade from the sun. There are a few palm trees, but the only true escape from the heat was getting in the water. We bought some cheap snorkels and masks to try out, but the water was too murky to see very deep. There was also large crops of slimy seaweed growing about four feet deep, which was difficult to avoid. All in all, I enjoyed this place.
