I say sea, they call it a river and a lagoon, it is actually the inter coastal waterway that lies between us and the long sand bar which further north is home to Cape Canaveral. The shore is littered with piers that stretch out like eager fingers into the shallow water, some have not stood up to the storms as well as others but all make an attractive backdrop.
Again the site is full of snowbirds that will soon be migrating back home, does that make us snowbirds too I wonder?
The first day of spring was heralded in with heavy rain,
but it soon cleared and it has been in the 80's ever since. We are going to find it hard when we get back home!
Oh ,did I mention we are only a few yards from the main railway line that also runs parallel to the coast?
We did know about this and have become accustomed to the inevitable rattling and shaking, though the hooter takes a bit more getting used to - especially in the wee small hours.
As you all know by now, I love my wildlife so humouring me yet again we visited Turkey Creek, just a few minutes up the road. This small sanctuary is home to a diverse bird and animal population, set in sand pine forest and hardwood hammock it was a delightful saunter through what seemed like another "jungle".
As we wandered through the dense vegetation and beside the sleepy creek we scanned every nook for a glimpse of the elusive wildlife. We were rewarded as we looked up by this fellow, feasting upon an unlucky fish!
