On the other hand, I only saw two people. Fishermen in a boat.
In addition to the birds shown, magnificent frigate birds circled high overhead. Too high for a picture.
Landed at 11:30. Thirty miles back to Key West. Got my stuff from my nephew's house, and headed to my sister's where I spent the next two nights. Perfect timing, arriving at lunch time. My Mom getting to dote on her two new great grandchildren. And grand children. And children. Mom was heading home, that's why I was moving into Monica's office/guest room for the duration of the holiday. When my sister took my Mom to Key West International, I took the kayak to a wide spot of the Salt Run Channel for a quick paddle.
The Salt Run Channel links the Ocean to the Riviera Canal, and the Salt Ponds. I wanted to head to the big water in the limited time I had before dark. Entered a gap in the mangroves, dead end. Came back to the pond. Entered the next gap. Ended back in the pond. Forget it, I'll head south to the Riviera Canal.
