November 19, 2015 – Sombrero Beach

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.

    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.
