Hubby and I came down this time with ideas on what we wanted to accomplish this trip. I am proud to say that we completed most of it today, by noon and it's only Tuesday! We finished the wall around our new windows....we were a little concerned because we had to go get more paint, but luckily had the can the original was made from and Lowe's was able to match it...perfectly! How awesome is that? We figured out if we could peel back the carpet, doing the trim paint would be so much easier. We were very pleased with the final result, now the window walls are finally complete.
I looked out of the window today and saw this Cormorant on the other side of the pond with this fish, you could see him trying to figure out how he was going to eat his catch. With patience and persistence he got it done! Check this out!
As promised, here are the few shells we have gotten in the last few days, the shelling is slow, but that's okay, just walking the beaches is enough for me. I did find some empty kings crowns!
I believe this guy is a Tricolored Heron, I don't think I have ever seen one of these before!
Here is a Reddish Egret, this guy followed along behind me or ahead of me the entire evening. I named him Simon...
The beaches were pretty barren, but there were many micro-mini shells in several places, at first glance they looked like small piles of rice or coarse sand.
|There's Simon leading me back!|
I started the day today reading my favorite blogs, one of which is The Shell King, he posted about patience today and I found it very inspiring....go on over there and read it for yourself! I thought it was awesome and thought about it all day! I hope it inspires you too! http://theshellking.com/2014/05/20/be-patient/
