Last Day at HBSP
Well, we've sorta packed up in preparation for heading home tomorrow. It was cold (relatively speaking) this morning...38 degrees, but it warmed up nicely in the afternoon sun so we wandered over to the causeway between the fresh water marsh and the salt water marsh. It's a birder's paradise, and it's pretty convenient for those who feed on them. There were hundreds of birds: pelicans, egrets, ibises, herons, assorted ducks and, lurking in the bullrushes, a sizeable old alligator. We had left the dogs in the bus, which probably was a good idea.
We are still eating Thanksgiving leftovers, so tonight I'll saute up a pan of smoked turkey sausage, veggies and rice. Tomorrow the bus goes into storage for a couple of months. The next trip will be to Red Bay, AL and points south in February
