"Lollypop"the local name for a sand pit 1/2 mile from our house in FL.
Deep and protected , some claim to have seen FL Panthers at dusk , coming for a drink.
Not a great swim spot , the gators can be 12-14 ft but are rare..
Going East after leaving the Ortona Lock pass River Forrest marina entrance and turn in on the SECOND entrance on left.
A long dug canal (1/2 mile) that ends at Lollypop.
Sand bottom, a watch fob anchor will do.
