ON THE BACK BURNER

Oct 24

Back to Mayaaka to do more bird watching.Once, years ago, I spotted a roseate spoonbill bird. Once. Today, I saw several ,many in flight and one pecking for what ever birds eat , here in Florida.That was so exciting. These birds , if you haven't seen them, are pink, and their bills have something that looks like a spoon at its end. I understand that their color gets a  bolder, but today, it was light pink. And my guest who also wanted to see alligators got her wish. Now  we are both happy. I don't get that excited about alligators,but I guess when I first moved here, I thought that it was cool to see them .Now , I just hope that they stay far far away from me and from Noodle. We tried hard to see a sunset tonight, to finish out another perfect day. Wasn't going to happen. The clouds took over and the sun just couldn't cut through them. We tried for a moon rise and we almost saw one. The moon was playing peek a boo behind some dark clouds and finally ,the clouds won. It would have been a very full moon, to go with our very full day.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
