Bays

Bays

Sediments line the coast of Florida in the southern United States of America, giving the peninsula a greenish frame. These are particularly evident on the west side of the tip of the peninsula, between the Everglades and the Florida Keys.

The first close-up focuses on Lake Okeechobee, the second-largest freshwater lake wholly within the continental United States, and the city of Miami, appearing as a grey area along the east coast.

The second shows two large bays by the west coast: Tampa Bay (above), by the citiess of Tampa and St. Petersburg, and the Charlotte Harbor Estuary (below), by the cities of Port Charlotte and Fort Myers.
