A quick trip to Bayou la Batre, AL & some scenes. 

Pelicans & white ibis hung around a seafood wholesale business waiting for them to fill up the refuse container - bird banquet!

Interesting use of oyster shells to make a wall.

 You know, I had forgotten about this blog. Seems it had gotten weird to add photos the way it had been & it just discouraged me. Maybe I’ll try again. 

Ah, yes, trying to upload some photos of the eagle spotting adventure, I remember now why I hate it. No matter the order you chose, it goes up nilly-willy! 😡

Found the nest way off the road, but then one bird flew off….in the opposite direction.

Early Springtime Blooms

 Looks like there will be loads of dewberries this year! Lots of blooms all around the yard.

 The wild blueberries are covered in blossoms.

 They look like tiny chandeliers..

 The Confederate Jasmine is not to be outdone. Happy looking blooms.

 Even the sky is "radiating".

 Moss is greening.... I love moss and the way it peeks out from the leaf litter...

Don't know what kind of tree/shrub this is, but it's pretty!

Foggy Day Visit to the Estuarium

I went to visit Andrea today at the Dauphin Island campground, but it was so foggy! We decided to go over to the Estuarium and look around, hoping the fog would lift. 

The Estuarium has fish and other critters that represent the various habitats along the coastal areas. 

There were all kinds of turtles, fish, amphibians, reptiles, skeletons, fossils, etc. Loads of information about the area from the water to dunes, bogs and ponds.

Traffic jam!

Slender fish...
Basking turtles and snakes...didn't take their photos.

Odd cartoon like fish...

Yummy fish like snapper, trigger fish and others..

Scary Moray eels...
Hiding lobsters...
Evasive and deadly... but fascinating Lion Fish..

Anatomy specimens..
Outside on the board walk, it was still foggy....making the oil rig appear to be floating in the air.

The Mossasaur..
My, what big teeth you have!

No, this little allligator wasn't green, but the lighting in it's tank gave it a pink and green cast!

Outside is a ray tank where you can touch them as they fly through the water.

Through the side viewing area..

Reddish seahorses feed among the grasses.

If you haven't visited, it's a fun outing! Dauphin Island, AL.

Post Ice Storm

 Still cold and ice still on the ground, but the sky is interesting!
Most of the icy fingers have left the roof line and just these are felt under the bay window.
