Day 8 on Captiva

After our daily coffee,  we took a trip to Ding Darling Wildlife Reserve to do some bird watching.   We arrived at the drive about 9 with a cloudy sky and cool temperatures.  The tide was low and a lot of birds were feeding in the distant waters including many White Ibis, Great Blue Herons, Great Egrets, Little Blue Herons, Snowy Egrets, Reddish Egrets, White Pelicans, Brown Pelicans, Cormorants, and a few Roseate Spoonbills scattered in the crowd.  We saw a lot of Blue-Winged Teals, more than we saw last year, but not any other ducks today. Some of our photos shown below:


We then drove into Sanibel to shop at Bailey's for dinner and a few other items.  It had started to rain by the time we arrived back at the house.    I made sandwiches for lunch on the porch.   It had begun to rain harder and was very windy.   Al had an appointment for a massage at 3 so we drove down to the Spa.   He was very pleased with the Masseur and his back felt better after his massage. The rain continued to fall.

For dinner I prepared Panko Crusted Red Snapper that baked in the oven.  Used recipe from the web.   Served with mashed potatoes and arugula salad.  Very good!  We dined inside tonight....too cool and damp on the porch.

Al watched the races at Northfield Park tonight on the computer.
