9. Oyster Alley Covered Boardwalk

As you approach the covered portion of the boardwalk, look to your left. You will see a line of trees that appear to nearly cross the marsh. This is the old Spanish Wells Road bed. Before the new bridge was built across Jarvis Creek in the 1960s, anyone going to or from Spanish Wells used to come through Honey Horn. The old road bed remains; however, the wooden bridge is long-gone.  


Also, keep your eyes open for wading birds like great egrets, blue herons, yellow crowned night herons, or little blue herons. These birds are often found in this part of the creek and salt marsh. Sometimes they will be roosting in the live oak trees across the creek, other times they’ll be hunting for food along the edge.
