 Magnificent frigate birds at Snake Key
 Spoonbill and frigate birds. Hard to top that.







The frigate birds are recent visitors to Snake Key.  They mysteriously disappeared from Seahorse Key in the spring.  I first saw them at Snake Key in June.


Hello, ladies.




Tri colored herons have lined the channel that divides the key in two for as long as I have been visiting.










 Headed back to Cedar Key

Bike to Sandy's for some vittles



 Some selfish sob in the kayak loading spot. White shirt.
I loaded my kayak on the car and headed to the Airport Road put in
On the water at 7:23




 Not the best sunset, but always good to be on the water.

I was able to get some practice for the 4th of July show from my balcony
