Jerry took tons of photos of birds but hasn't gone through all his yet. I only took over 100 but he has about 700! So you have to look at mine until he gets all sorted :)
Every day at low tide, he'd go out and photograph the rocks and other critters (starfish, crabs, a little blue heron that fed on the fish that were stranded when the tides went out) in the rocky area left bare of water. Then at high tide, he'd go stalk the birds (Royal Terns mostly) as they came in closer to us to feed and squawk and mate (yes, right on the beach in front of everyone!)
Every morning the sun climbed up from the water's edge into the sky - sometimes clouds created some nice colors, other times it was much more subtle.
We went into St. Augustine and walked a bit, bought some things for my sister as a thank you for watching Smudge while we were gone. Went to the St. John's Pier to see the pelicans and other birds.
We walked the 219 steps up the lighthouse and saw a private gallery showing of oil paintings of parts of lighthouses (including the lens parts) by artist, Mary Shelton. It was private because the gallery was closed when we arrived Sunday the 26th but they let us in when I said that was one reason we came to visit (as we'd done the Lighthouse before). It is amazing how many women are terrified of heights, and yet, let their significant others (men) talk them into going up and out at the top of the lighthouse.
And we took some nature walks to view the flowers and other critters (leaping lizards all over the place). And, of course, spent a day at the Alligator Farm watching the herons, ibis, spoonbills, woodstorks, and egrets all building nests, watching eggs or raising chicks.
So that's all for now. Hope you enjoy them. Next batch will be from the Jacksonville Zoo (wait until you see the American flamingos!!!)
