Another vantage point
Went back to bed, but not to sleep. Less than an hour later, back outside for a walk.
I was trying to concentrate on doors
My door. Kind of bland.
Above 80 at 8:30. Breakfast was inside.
Dolphin off Dog Island
There were about 5 of them.
This appears to be new lease site. For clam farming. Or, I was farther out than I thought. Just after I took the picture, a manatee surfaced. Just once. Giving me the Florida Trifecta for the weekend. Alligator, dolphin, manatee.
Shell mound on the unnamed key (as far as I know) south of Scale Key
It was very land. I was ready to land. But, it was low tide. So, instead of landing and having to drag or carry the kayak a long way, I kept paddling.
Oyster reef I paddle over at high tide in search of roosting spoonbills.
Low tide means wading, not roosting.
See the pink dot? Spoonbill in flight
I knew I'd find spoonbills
Just a sample of the hundreds of fiddler crabs.
More to come
