We love to stroll through the Sanctuary as it is very peaceful and view of the Sebastian Inlet is magnificent. Being a veteran it is a place to reflect on all my comrades who didn't come back from Vietnam. How lucky I am!

Beautiful setting and wonderful walk around the island. A memorial for each war our people served. Sobering and awe inspiring. Many headstones of local people ...many gave but some gave their lives. Important to always remember.
