Fishing at Dawn

A lone fisherman casts his line at dawn at Gilbert’s Bar on Hutchinson Island, Florida, by the House of Refuge, built in 1876 as salvation for shipwreck survivors . Here waves of the Atlantic spray high into the air over a ridge of rock, the Anastasia Limestone, which forms bluffs up to 15 feet tall from Stuart south to Jupiter. On stormy days, you may see fountain-like spurts through erosion holes in the limestone. Not all Florida shores are flat and sandy!
