We were expecting lots of rain yesterday and we had a little but by 10.00 am it had cleared away and the sun was shining again so we headed off to the beach. When we got there we realized it was just way to windy on the beach as the sand was blowing every which way and Mom didn't want it blowing in our eyes so we decided to take a walk along the grassy area that was protected by nearby buildings. It was here we saw a number of Ospreys all standing around on the grass. We are guessing it was even to windy for them to fly. Mom got a couple of great pics of one them (he was the biggest out of all of them) and we loved the beady eyes look it gave her in the second photo - like he was saying "I'm watching you watching me!"
My mom was stacking up all the patio furniture yesterday because of the wind (they're on anna maria island).ReplyDelete
