Blue Cypress Lake

This magnificent lake is approximately seven miles long and three miles wide with 21miles of shoreline surrounded by 29,000 acres of marshes, swamps and cypress forests. It’s a place of complete surrender to Mother Nature as blue skies give way to blue-hued water which some say occur because of the reflection of the Blue Cypress trees on the lake as the morning sun rises into the sky. The lake is also a top Osprey nesting site reporting over 200 nests along the shoreline. Kayaking and canoeing up close to see Osprey nests in the wild and to marvel at the 130-foot tall cypress trees make this worth a trip. But when you can also spot American Alligators, bald eagles, and fish including largemouth bass crappie, bluegill, catfish, chain pickerel and more; Blue Cypress Lake becomes an outdoor Shangri-La. Middleton’s Fish Camp is the only one of its kind on the lake and they are happy to provide eco-tours and fishing.

Breconshire Marker

The Breconshire was an iron steamship that was built in 1883. On the night of April 29th, it ran aground in 20 feet of water due to faulty navigational charts. The Coast Guard, responding to the call of distress, attempted to tow the steamer off the reef, but the Breconshire began taking on water. On April 30th, the order was issued to abandon ship. No lives were lost, and at low tide, the boiler of the ship is still visible from Humiston Park.
 Marker is located at the North end of the Boardwalk of Humiston Park , Vero Beach , FL32963
