Today is Tuesday December 30, 2008
Today we were up early and had breakfast downstairs, then around 9:30 am we drove out to the beach at the end of the road. Karen is going to look for more sea shells and I am going to practice flying my kite.
After about an hour, we headed back to the hotel and did a final load of laundry so that we would have enough clean clothes to get us back home. We are due to leave here in a couple of days to head back North to the cold winter of Ontario.
Later in the afternoon we went out to the Birding and Wildlife Center to see if we can find any birds that we have not seen yet. While we were there, I saw some kites that were much fancier than mine. When I get better with mine and learn some tricks, I will have to upgrade to one of these kites.
We did find some birds that we had not seen yet. A Blue-winged Teal, a Killdeer and a Long Billed Curlew.
A Tri Colored Heron, a Red Head Duck keeping an eye on the Tri Colored Heron and a White Ibis.
A Laughing Gull and a Marbled Godwit.
After we got back from the Wildlife Center we wandered down to the end of our street to the Laguna Madre to watch the sun set. Too many clouds, but still pretty.
To see all of our photos from today you can see them on my FLICKR site.
