Do some of you old-time readers remember that my dad always looks up at the planes jetting into south Florida and announces, “Another bird coming into Paradise”?
This post shows you some of the resident birds of Paradise–from one of the newly arrived birds from Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.
So many birds in Fort Myers Beach, Florida:
Egrets, Herons, Pelicans, Cormorants, Anhingas!
Gulls, Ibis, Terns, Spoonbills!
Mom and I walked through the “Bird Sanctuary” on our way toward the Outrigger Motel and Restaurant this morning. We ambled along the bright sunny Florida beach. We picked up live sand dollars and tossed them back into the Gulf. We squinted into the sun. We waded in the surf. Later, we sipped lemonade and orange juice with Dad (who arrived on his bicycle.)
It’s been a quiet day. After our walk, we ate lunch. Then napped. Then I snoozed more by the pool, reading.
Ahhh, this is the life, folks. One could get used to this. 80 degrees. Sunny.
We’re headed to dinner and the theatre in twenty-five minutes. I must type fast. Have at least 75 photos I haven’t shown you yet, but didn’t want to freeze up any slow-loading computers.
Welcome to Fort Myers Beach, readers. Hope you enjoy our week as much as I will!
