We picked up Les and Pam in the government car, and drove to Charleston for the last SEA seminar. It was excellent. We learned about Interpretation and more about Estuarine environments. We saw two life birds, both the Red-necked Grebe and Western Tanager, both absolutely stunning.
When we got home, we walked down to the river, and watched the birds. It was a beautiful afternoon with lots of birds on the river. We grilled pork steak and fixed cornbread with corn added, and enjoyed a relaxing evening.
