Image Caption: 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.
