Roger pays more attention to birds, so finally there are some shots of them.












The rest of them, including mine which have already been posted, are here.  Thanks for looking.

That raccoon out in the daylight would cause all manner of panic in this area.  Still, fine shots indeed and thank you for sharing them.

Looks like a nice trip. I'd like to get down that way sometime.  Looks like a totally different experience than I'm used to in the outdoors.  Thanks for sharing.

I'm wondering if I can get into my boat from a chickee without going in the drink.  :D

Actually, it is quite easy from the ladder, as long as you have help loading the hatches.  Low tide is more difficult than high tide, for obvious reasons.

In that picture, I was searching for something small and found I could balance fairly well kneeling on the seat. Roger grabbed his camera to film the spill, that never happened.
