Most of the photos today are bird pics, and two of them feature them standing on one leg. How they do this on a tree, in the wind, is beyond me. We begin with the Great Blue Heron. I think they are magnificent. He’s in the dead tree, of course. He chased out a few vultures and claimed the branch. 🙂
Next is the ibis. There is a flock of them around right now because the guy across the canal keeps feeding them bread. This isn’t good for them, and there are laws against feeding wildlife, but he does it anyway.
I took this next one Sunday morning. I noticed the guy, who is fairly young and bearded, though you can’t tell from the photo, on the lake. He was fishing. In fact, I saw several people fishing the lake yesterday. I wonder if they caught anything? If they did, did they take them home? I am not happy about fishing for sport. If you catch something–if you cause the fish pain–then eat them.
Behind him is the island at the end of the canal. I have not seen the ‘gator. I wonder if he was moved or went somewhere else?
Another nice week lies ahead. The temps have been wonderful! I love waking up each day. I leap out of bed and throw open the curtains to check out the canal and sky. Almost always, it is sunny. The nights have been a little cool, but it warms up by midmorning. I’m usually out in the lanai working by then, Suki at my feet. Break for lunch, then finish work or switch to writing. Dinner then, and afterward some relaxing television, streamed or DVD. Then reading until bed.
This is my schedule most days of the week. Occasionally, I run errands or visit R or take off for a drive or go out to dinner, but mostly, yeah, this is it.
To some, my life may sound boring, but I love it! There is very little stress, and I’m happy a lot these days. 🙂
Have a great week!
