Day 10 on Captiva

Wednesday, February 11, 2009
After coffee and pastries, we packed up cameras,etc for trip to Bailey Tract. Arrived about 9:45. Sunny morn and comfortable temp for walking. At Mangrove Island heard a bellowing alligator before we saw him near the water edge...never heard this before....sounded like an elephant. Al got some good pictures but missed with mouth wide open. Was highlight of walk. Saw other alligators in far water area. Saw ibis, heron, blues, osprey, mottled ducks, and grebes.
Went to Over Easy for lunch just before noon...Al had Reuben Wrap with fries and I had half tomato with tuna salad. Bought some blinking Shamrock earrings at store there.
Went to Bailey's for Wed and Thurs dinners. Headed home and then out to beach for couple of hours. For dinner we made pan fried snapper with rice and arugula salad with lemon vinaigrette. Quiet evening at home.
