The wind was blowing hard at Fort Desoto on a Saturday morning in late February. I was the only one there on the fishing pier along with the pelicans.
The views from East beach.
Someone dropped their breakfast on the beach. It looks like a laughing gull. There are eagles that cruise this area and a nest on the other side of the park so it might be one of them.
A wall of rain was coming in off the gulf and it was already drizzling so after snapping this I headed home.
Skimmers cruising by trying to catch fish in their beaks.
This gull’s fish could barely fit in his beak.
Snowy egrets hovering over the light poles on the fishing pier. Different perspective which is a reminder to not stand under one of these poles if there’s a bird on top or you’ll get a bird poop shower.
Harry the hybrid looking pretty with his blue breeding face.
A few of the dolphins swimming around the pier including the Mom with her baby close by.
Looks like some construction far out in the bay.
I rarely see shrimp boats in the bay. It reminds me of vacations with my family in the panhandle. We saw them often up in north Florida.
Pretty vines growing on the sand.
