  STS059-089-039 Saint Joseph Bay, Florida, U.S.A. April 1994
A well-developed sand spit that curves generally northward forms Saint Joseph Bay and separates the bay from the blue Gulf of Mexico. Small, urban Port Saint Joe lies on the northeast coast of the bay, which is connected to the Intracoastal Waterway by a linear, highly reflective canal. Darker sediment is transported from Apalachicola Bay westward through Indian Pass north of Saint Vincent Island (bottom left). Most of the area is coastal wetlands (low-lying swamps). Widely scattered cumulus clouds are apparent (lower right corner).
