Day 14 on Captiva
Another foggy day. I say that literally, the fog rolled in, in waves. Thin whispy strands of cotton pulling off a solid roll in the background.(Watch Video) Last night's weather man called it "spooky fog", his partner called it "pea fog". Whatever you call it, it was not what we were here for. As we entered the DDWR bird sanctuary the fog seemed to lift, the sun came out, and we had 2 hours of 80-90 degrees with plenty of sunshine. Took a few shots of a resting Roseate, and a huge flock of Willets (maybe 200 birds) sitting in the sand on the edge of a small island, all facing the same direction, as if they were all waiting for the same thing. Monday is "supposed" to clear off, then a cool front comes thru, and 70's and 80's for the weekend. We may ride down to Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary this week to see what birds we can find there. We cooked in tonight making scallops baked in a lemon, wine, and butter sauce with green salad and confetti rice. Was not as good as I expected. Had to cook scallops longer than recipe said.
