Day 11 Captiva

Drive through DDWR
We were up early this morning for coffee and bagels. We headed to DDWR about 8AM to check out birds. As we drove in to parking lot, we spotted a hawk, 2 opreys, and red-bellied woodpeckers. One of pictures Al made there is the osprey in the tree. Lot of wading birds were feeding including ibis, blue herons, white and brown pelicans, woodstorks, roseate spoonbills, snowy egrets, great egrets, great white herons, and great blue herons. Ducks we saw were grebes and blue winged teals. Lot more seen including sandpipers, gulls, kingfisher, opreys, etc.Was low tide so great timing for birding. After drive, we went to Amy's Over Easy for brunch...Al had Bagel and Lox Plate and I had tomato stuffed with tuna salad. Made stop at Tarpon Bay to take at look of view. Was going to beach next but clouds started to form. Dinner tonight at Doc's Ford. Shared some oysters on the half shell. I ordered calamari salad and Al had Bahamian Stlye Roast Shrimp with skewered pineapple, red peppers, zucchni, and red onions. Not very busy when we arrived about 5:30...we did call ahead but no waiting for a table.
