Tourist Time

 Since we have out of state friends visiting, we decided to take them on a tour today to the beach and to Fort Matanzas.  On the nature walk, we got a bonus of several dolphins playing in the river!
 At the fort, we saw this flock of Ibis with a large family of young birds!
 The Florida sunshine was brilliant but the cold front from the north caused quite a chill-in the low 60's-can you say brrrrrrrrrrr!?!  So glad you have Neal and Helen here from North Syracuse, NY.
 After a great lunch at the South Beach Grill, we took a long walk on the beach.  Sandy is giving a wonderful surf!
 This guy has the right idea about finding a place out of the wind and in the sunshine!

 The beach was at low tide and just full of shells and flotsam to delight beach combers!
So long to our visitors...........look forward to another visit soon!
