  STS056-076-027 Fort Pierce, Florida, U.S.A. April 1993
The land corridor between Lake Okeechobee and the Atlantic Ocean is captured in this southeast-looking photograph of the east coast of Florida from Jupiter (south) to Vero Beach (north). Several small coastal cities—Stuart, Jensen Beach, and Port Salerno—are adjacent to an embayment (near center) that provides the entrance to the eastern leg of the Okeechobee Waterway via the light, linear Saint Lucie Canal. The east-west-oriented canal between the lake and the ocean provides a navigable route across the peninsula of Florida.
