A Windy Day

It was sunny and in the 80s F today but with a stiff 50kph wind, it felt cooler. We went to the convention centre for Market Days which really was just a flea market. It was only $1 to get in and we spent quite a bit of time at the various booths. Skip picked up some tourist info and I bought a pair of earrings to go with one of my new Liz Claiborne tops. Then we headed to the boardwalk for some birding.

The spoonbills were close again. Three types of heron/egret were fishing: the great egret, great blue heron, tricoloured heron,

and a reddish egret.

We went to the other boardwalk and saw four moorhens, the resident pied-bill grebe and finally saw the alligator:

He's a big'un.
