Yellow-crowned Night Heron

We landed in Boston last night after a long day's drive from Lorton. David was so excited about the Auto train we have already booked our fare back. Must admit it helps have a sleeper with bath and eating in that car vs. the coach. Also, our car was one of the first off which was a godsend in that we were on the road by 8:30 A.M. Extra $50. worth every penny. Visiting families here , going to special olympics tomorrow and heading to Maine in the afternoon.

Off to Boston and Maine. So excited to see all my summer friends who use to be my year round friends! Especially happy we will see our children and grandchildren.

Cattle Egret

I know, I've gone bird crazy. I can just hear Larry but at least it's not another gator for he could be grateful. There certainly were plenty of them there lurking for the fallen eggs or chicklets learning to fly but flop.

Sweet baby Rosette Spoonbill!

As I look at some of the photos I got that day the more I'm convinced I will need to return. Down to the last few days and we're making the most of them topping off each day with an hour in the pool. I am going to miss this lazy lifestyle. Painted all afternoon while David watched the Red Sox.
