Great night at anchor. Frogs sang for hours.

After another dingy ride this morning we spotted this guy. It can be a bit intimidating when they slide in the water and you are in an inflated boat.


We hauled up the anchor and headed N. Here’s some nice gator tail.


It turned out to be a day of Ospreys. They are nesting now and in some of the pictures you can see babies.


Now this one has the perfect spot….protection from the sun and rain….


Most of the markers have nests. Every now and then you’ll see the crews out with pitch forks pulling them down. Have to keep the solar panels clear.


Might be 2 chicks in this nest.



I see a little head peeking out.


Makes you wonder what is holding this one up. These nests can weigh a lot.


She’s got chicks and was warning us off…


Another handsome fella.


and then there is “Bubba”. This must be Bubba’s Island…he was here the last time and is a tourist attraction. One pontoon boat nosed up to shore and he didn’t move. I was able to get this picture after they left. This is one to judge others by.


It was pretty warm and no breeze so we headed back to G3, Lungun Island. We stopped there on the way past and dropped off a couple of Christine Kling’s books to Captain Jim of Sailbad the Sinner, who was anchored there. He told us some friends, Ron and Karen, were stopping by later this afternoon. We decided to go back after visiting Bubba, and anchor there for the night. We had a great time sitting on their pontoon boat and visiting, we hadn’t seen them for quite awhile.

Another great night on the water with a chorus of frogs singing us to sleep.
