A trip out to an island full of old Florida.
|This reminds me of the river road in Melbourne (FL)|

|We're not kids anymore, but 4 decades + didn't change much the mattered.|
|These mangroves get trimmed by a licensed mangrove trimmer!|
No harm to the mangroves, they are thick and robust
|Someone had some fun|
|Pier 22, great sushi, good service and good atmosphere.|
I felt like I was at home when we went out for a smoke
and our server brought my my drink
|Looking down the lake|
Obviously, I was completely mesmerized, mosquitos be damned. But the glory was fading and I could move again.
Walking back to the Turtle I heard two boys talking about the bald eagle they were looking at. Heading their way, there it was, huge, close and majestic. Of course, I had the wrong lens on my camera and the photos aren't good ones; in fact they are very bad ones. But I'm putting them up anyway. Maybe this afternoon they will come back.

There's a saying among some on St. Croix - The West is the Best. Yesterday I could say that too. Joy joy!
Have a serendipitous Sunday. Do something smiling.
