A very slow and relaxing day. I have a cold of some sort so I was glad of the day off the bike.
We started out with a walk along a nature trail. On the way there we stopped in a delightful cafe for some breakfast. I had a breakfast thing with sausage and egg whilst Karen had a very tasteful Blue Crab and Spinach quiche.
We then strode of to the nature trail expecting some wild life and was presented with this.
|Wohoo... this could be good....|
|Believe it or not this was the track of the oldest railway in the US. Part of the Atlantic to Gulf of Mexico railway. Now a sand trail with no wildlife - except bugs and bushes of course.,|
It turned out to be a disappointment and the only life we saw were a few birds, a few jumping fish and a load of labels identifying trees and bushes.
|Where is everybody !!!|
We strode back into the City (you know, the one with 16 streets !) and after getting some shopping found a bar overlooking (and actually over) the Bay of Mexico. I am being cheeky. It is actually a lovely place and we are both glad we booked in for two nights.
|One of the backwater rivers.|
|And a dicky bird. A Hudsonian Godwit - we think !|
|This cheeky chap started pinching the bar peanuts. A Common Grackle.|
After a couple of sangria's it was back to the motel only to find this cute beastie adorning the porch.
|Shrek ? ... For you I could be !|
Moving swiftly on.... Tomorrow, its off Northeast towards Tallahassee.
