Default Old Pickens Reef

OK, I was talking with a friend who had too many beers but described a place between Navare and Pensacola [Beach]. He stated that it was an old road that was now a submerged reef. It could be walked to or an old man would bring you to it with a 4X4 for a fee. He said it was called, "Pickens."

Sounds like an old legend but has anybody heard of something like this?

Like I said, probably an old legend. Well, I am gonna drink a few and watch the fireworks with another old friend tonight from the boat. Who knows, maybe he'll tell me a tall tale, too.
