It was a good day for kayaking and we went to a nearby park that allowed us to travel in canal like waterways near Matlacha. We saw lots of birds and I only got pictures of a few of them. One of the best experiences for me was watching a red-tailed hawk fly away because I saw the details of its tail!
The adult manatee has been dead for quite some time - no smell to it, but the vultures liked the meal!
I liked being behind Becky as she watched a couple of egrets and a cormorant interact with each other. It seemed like the cormorant was chasing the egret away!
After the outing, we went into Matlacha and had ice cream at Great Licks. I had a mixture of chocolate and toasted coconut! YUM!
