“It’s hard for me to put into words why I like the beach so much. Everything about it is renewing for me, almost like therapy...Beach Therapy”
As predicted, the lack of low tides during daylight has certainly slowed down the shelling for us... As you can see by this picture!
Hubby and I have spent a lot of time sitting on the beach, just enjoying the sights! We've seen lots, and lots of birds, dolphin...and the occasional sea monster again. We think that we figured out it was manatee...they seemed to swim rather quickly, but saw another couple yesterday, and the beaver-like tail made us more certain....I think....! :) Maybe I'll be able to get a picture of one of them!!
|An Osprey on the hunt...fishing!!|
|A Cormorant, I was told they stand there like this after a swim to dry out their wings to fly! This one stood there for a Long, Long time...posing for me!|
|I think this is a Willet|
|Reddish Egret, He was fishing too...had a great system...video later!|
|Ruddy Turnstone...I think|
|A Duck!! In the Gulf??|
|Love the Pelicans!|
|Love the Snowy Plover....so hard to photograph because they move SOO Fast!|
|Got Him!! This (I think) is the male...a lady following them told us the female is banded, we saw the baby the other day....so sweet, but of course, I didn't have my camera!!|
These are the shells we've gotten over the last 3 days!! What a difference a tide makes...huh?! I don't really need any more shells anyway! It's fun to look though...something is therapeutic about it!!
We will head back to Sanford tomorrow am to catch the Auto Train back home...hopefully Beryl will not be there when we get there!! Maybe I'll post one more time this evening, then I will catch you up with the videos after we get home!!
