Afternoon on SPI

After putting bird seed out at Ramsey Park this morning, we headed over to South Padre Island, the sun was shining and the winds low.
After lunch at Daddy's Seafood and Cajun Restaurant, we checked out the County Park at the south end of the island. We had never been there before but one of the ladies in the Audubon group likes to go shelling there. You have to go early though to get the good shells as it is a popular place even on a chilly day as was today.There were starfish and jelly fish that had washed ashore, I have never seen a starfish before. Does one pick them up and dry them??
We also visited the Bird Boardwalk one of our favorite birding places, there was alot people enjoying the birds there today.
Ken didn't carry his camera and was kicking himself as the Black Skimmers were up close, close enough that I could catch a photo of them skimming by with my little camera.
The Roseate Spoonbills flew in, and there were several White Ibis up close, as well as several other shore birds. I got several good photos of the birds today and will be adding them to my Flickr photostream.

Ken's computer died again, so we'll go looking for a new one so until he gets a one we'll be sharing mine.
