Now that May is here, the pace has slowed a bit and I've enjoyed bike rides nearly every day and was lucky to go paddle boarding twice last week.
After paddling up on Charlotte Harbor, we stopped at the Jug Creek Marina and bought some fresh mullet, which was filleted and skinned at only $3. per pound! Other fish available yesterday included pompano, oysters, and porgie. It was windy so the fishermen hadn't gone out that day, I hope to go back next week for a bigger selection.
The pelicans were waiting eagerly for scraps as were little white and great white egrets. You won't find a better place for bird watching than Pine Island!
We finally got some rain earlier last week, a couple of inches, so hoping the drought of the last four months is over, or going to be over soon. This photo is of the rain puddles up a little Jug Creek.
On national bird migration day, I saw great blue herons, a hummingbird, a king fisher, ibis, egrets, hawks, cardinals, blue jays, cardinals, and a bald eagles nest with two chicks. Come to Pine Island to enjoy the great water access, the unspoiled nature, and the easy going life.
