The Old Dock -- east across the Indian River

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

This photo was taken at sunrise on the Indian River, which is a lagoon on the Florida east coast. I was standing on a rather high bluff looking down at the dock, so you don't see the pilings. That makes it seem that the dock is just floating on the surface. The feeling this picture gives me is like traveling into eternity. It was such a calm and peaceful morning, a little misty with almost no wind at all.

Hello, Pradeep, and thank you for your visit and comments! This body of water, which in reality is a lagoon, was named the Indian River for the Ais people (Native Americans/Indians) living here when the Europeans first came. In 1492, Columbus thought he had reached India when he arrived in the Bahamas, so he called the native people "indios." Thereafter, native peoples in the Americas became known as Indians, and that is how the West Indies got their name too.
