Day 38 on Captiva

We left around 9:00am for Bailey Tract to take a walk on the trail.  We parked at the back area off Island Inn Road and entered by Smith Pond.  It was a quiet morning as birds go and we only saw a couple of Mottled Ducks, one Pied-bill Grebe, 2-3 Catbirds, 1 Mocking Bird,  2 Blue Herons, some Coots, and a few Warblers.



 
 

 
 
After our walk, we went to Over Easy for breakfast about 11:00.  We had a bit of a wait for a table but service was very prompt and we received our orders very fast!  Al had the Lox Platter and I had Eggs Benedict. 
 
After a quick stop at Bailey's for bread and pastries, etc we drove to the house and then headed to the beach for a beautiful afternoon of sun and surf.  Al caught the Thriller, a high speed tourist boat, which comes by every afternoon, on video with his phone.

The flock of willets returned today and I made a video so you can see the entire group.

We both finished the books that we were reading-Al finished Naked Greed by Stuart Woods and I finished The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson.

For dinner I prepared Pork Chops au Poivre with a Whiskey Sauce ( no brandy so I substituted Jack Daniels ).  Served with Rosemary Garlic Roasted Potatoes, Green Beans, and Arugula Salad and hot rolls.  Not a bad dinner for an amateur.
