A ruddy turnstone staring at me.
The usual oystercatcher walking along the water.
A willet walking by.
These godwits and willets were trying to sleep in the water.
I tried not to wake anyone up. They looked so peaceful.
The above are all black bellied plovers hanging around the marsh.
A sandwich tern fly by.
A handful of shorebirds that were hanging out at Fort Desoto in late September.
Except when I’m at Fort De Soto. Best place to see the sunset. It was a beautiful Sunday night in early November. On the way down, I stopped at Aunt Lena’s place. She is hubby’s 86-year-old aunt. We keep an eye on her and I brought a late lunch for us to eat together since hubby had to work that afternoon. I headed over to the park around 4pm and it was a perfect late afternoon. Not too hot and beautiful skies. Right before sunset I headed over to the fishing pier and people were already lining up on the grass next to the pier with their chairs and picnic baskets. It was a perfect night.
