There are so many sights to see in Florida, but nothing quite like Lovers Key State Park in Fort Meyers Beach. This stretch of land is covered in beautiful and ghostly driftwood. Over time, dead, sun-bleached trees have become lodged in the sand, creating a pale forest on the Gulf Coast for curious travelers to explore.\nWhile the dead trees are smooth and whitewashed like beached driftwood, in reality, they never left the park. Melaleuca trees on Lovers Key were killed by rising seawater and became rooted in the sand, park volunteer Pam Jones-Morton told News-Press.\nVisitors have decorated the upended dead roots with a variety of shells and now-rusted locks. This memorial to once-great trees of the past creates a melancholy feeling, not unlike the one felt while laying flowers at an old grave.\nLovers Key is also well-known for its breathtaking scenery, according to Florida State Parks. Visitors may spot peaceful ocean-dwellers like manatees or dolphins swimming in the blue-green surf.\nView this post on Instagram Decorate your own soul... #loverskeystatepark #loverskey #loverskeytrees #islandgirl #beachday #gulfofmexico #igersfortmyers A post shared by Wendy Wall McGurk (@wendymc23) on Sep 8, 2019 at 2:16pm PDT\nEventually, the dead trees at Lovers Key may be taken by the waves, becoming true driftwood at last.
