Pleasure Island Part 2

Another area of interest is the shoreline on the channel side of the island.  T. B. Ellison Pkwy/Martin Luther King Jr. Drive parallels the ship channel for approximately 9 miles between the causeway bridge and just north of South Levee Entrance Road. Below is a road that has been blocked off because of hurricane damage, but you can park at the barricade and walk down the road to view flora and fauna of the island. This road is located about 9/10 of a mile south of MLK Jr. Memorial Bridge.

This photo shows some of the damaged to this section of road.

 I did not see any wildlife along the road on this trip, but there are plenty of places for that would attract wildlife.
