I spent four hours working on THE BOOK in the morning and then we went to Sombrero Beach for lunch and a walk. We invited a man and woman to sit at our picnic table with us and ended up having a great visit. Joe and Tina Moore from Savannah, Georgia are here for a two-week family Thanksgiving vacation and had just arrived today by boat. They have rented a house and the rest of the extended family will be arriving over the coming week.
Sombrero Beach is a city park used by tourists and locals alike. For some reason, I did’t take many pictures and the ones I did take were not all that good. We’ll be back there often enough to get more before the season is over.
This is a Little Blue Heron, but was very red. I spent a lot of time Googling images comparing it to the Reddish Egret, but couldn’t decide. So, I decided the default is Little Blue Heron.
The tide was high for our walk again today. I must have seen this before, but today noticed that a sea grape is growing out of the base of this palm tree.
I worked four more hours on THE BOOK after our walk.
That is such a great base to that tree…Beautiful pictures! Good luck with THE BOOK!
Not long off Thanksgiving now, so I hope you all have a lovely time. The bird looks like all the herons I’ve seen around here, although I realise that many wading birds have a similar shape. You were fortunate to capture him/her so close up. I agree with HonestMe above – the sea grape growing from the base of the palm is fascinating, and surely quite unususal.
Enjoy a great weekend Dinata. Remember to keep up the breaks, with lots of refreshing walks, inbetween pounding the computer keys. Congrats again on getting to grips with your book.
Thank you Millie!
