Vacation Time! Day Four, Osprey and Herons and Dolphins, Oh My!

This morning I woke up to find no one at all anywhere near. Vaguely remembering Pajamafin saying something about breakfast a little before seven, I chukka’d downstairs and out to the beach where he was sort of sitting in the water, sort of body surfing. We decided to drive back down to Fort Pickens because we had the week pass and because the beaches there are practically empty.

We get to the beach and there was maybe two other groups there, so in we went. When it is in the 90’s on land, that water gets cold. Once we were in it was nice, but the getting in was a bit chilly. The water was beautiful and clear, though.

And Pajamafin made a happy face sand castle.

Then we went on a nature hike and saw tons of osprey nesting, and a female green heron.

After the hike we went shopping for gifts for people and then we went to Surf Burger for lunch. I love their Aloha fries (french fries made from yams, yum). Then it was time to get on the boat to go try to find some dolphins.
And it was a big success!

After the dolphins we went to eat at a place on the beach called Crabs. While we were eating we got to see the tail end of the lunar eclipse in the red moon. There was so much moisture in the air that it was hard to get a descent picture.

Then the moon rose completely and was so bright it lit the beach up. With all the moisture in the air, it gave the beach an ethereal look. I thought it was absolutely beautiful.

Leaving tomorrow for home, but we may get up early and hit the beach again before check out.
