Day 31 Captiva

Monday morning began with a trip to Bailey Tract in Sanibel which is a part of Ding Darling, 100-acre tract located off Tarpon Bay Road. This wetland is home to freshwater bird species, herons and egrets, turtles, and alligators. The tract has almost two miles of trails that are suitable for walking or biking. Our best sighting of the morning were several nesting Yellow Crowned  Night Herons across from Smith Pond going out the back path to Island Inn Road.

Other sights photographed by Al:

Alligator in Smith's Pond

Vulture in Flight
Stopped for breakfast at Over Easy....and then shopped at Periwinkle Gardens where I bought some cotton clothing items at Fresh Produce.

Then back to the house and off to the beach.  More dolphins at play today.  I made these photos:

Dinner was at home.  Dined on panko crusted red snapper (purchased at the Farmer's Market) served with arugula salad and red-skin potatoes roasted with fresh Rosemay and garlic.
