Milton, Florida

Day 584

     Milton was settled in the early 1800s as a small village centered on the lumber industry. The settlement was originally known as “Scratch Ankle” because of the briars and bramble that grew in the area. Milton was incorporated as a city in 1844, one year before the Territory of Florida joined the United States as the 27th state.

     We went to the nearby city of Fort Walton to view the sunset over the Gulf of Mexico. They have a long fishing pier on which we walked  1/4 mile into the Gulf.

     The Pelicans also liked the pier:      As well as the Blue Heron: 

     And, of course, the sunset:
