We took an early drive through DDWR...usual birds....was low tide so a lot of shore birds feeding. Picked up subway sandwich and picnicked at Tarpon Bay while watching canoes and pontoon boats and birds in the bay. While out, Cecilia kept us posted about Beth and Rob at the hospital awaiting the birth of Baby Nye. Jacob Robert was born at 1:25 in the afternoon.
This evening we attended Ella's birthday dinner at Rene and Margarthe's home. Also attending were Agnes(E's sister), Paul (E's brother)and his wife, Magarita, Mike and his date Debbie, Sally from Boston. Dinner began with Margarthe's antipasto followed by Agne's Lasagna. Entree was roasted lamb with Rene's potatoes, salad, and green beans with tomato. Margarthe served homemade pumpkin roll for dessert. It was an evening of conversation and fun.
We having been visiting Captiva Island for a number of years and have found it to be a most fun and relaxing place. We started coming one week in February and one week in September many years ago and have added more weeks since we retired. We now come for 6 weeks at a time.
