If you already read yesterday’s blog, you might want to scroll back and take a look at a couple of photos I added; the alligator I mentioned and some beautiful white pelicans that just arrived from Canada. I was too tired to go through my photos last night, so I went through and picked out a few favorites to add to yesterday’s and today’s post.
We ended the day, yesterday, with a relaxing walk along Bowman’s Beach, noted for its excellent shelling. But, the shelling actually turned out to be better 1-1/2 blocks from our cottage, not far from the lighthouse.
Today, after swimming at the Sanibel Recreation Center, we took our kayaks out on the bay for some fishing and photography. Note that I said “fishing”, not “catching”. (After all, Bruce did purchase a fishing permit; not a catching permit.) Thanks to the ten degree drop in water temperatures that occurred just before we arrived on Sanibel, the fish are in a bit of shock, perhaps. But, it was fun watching the birds, including two ospreys on their nest, surveying the activity below. And, to top things off, we saw a pod of dolphins that came quite close to Bruce’s kayak. Although I didn’t get close enough to get a good photo, it was fun watching them- and, trying to catch up with the pod!
I did get a few photos of the ospreys and other birds; however, you won’t be seeing those (or any other kayaking photos) until after we return home. I didn’t realize until today that I don’t have my new waterproof camera’s software on my netbook; it is only my desktop computer- at home. It’s not that I forgot to do load it; it just never even occurred to me. Note to self, added to my spiral notebook that goes everywhere I go: Load Fuji software on netbook! That was notated right below: Write Debbie’s October 28th birthday on my 2013 calendar! Happy belated birthday (again), Deb; we’re thinking about you!
