I forgot to tell you about the Osprey nest that we also found on our quest for restful day at the beach.
While leisurely driving to the beach we had the sun roof open and I heard this gorgeous sound. When I look up through the sun roof I say a very large nest sitting on top of a tree, well what was left of the tree.
I asked Heather to stop and turn around so that I could check it out. As we pulled off the road to check the nest out we say 2 large birds land in the nest. One of the birds had a fish in its talons. As we found out they were 2 Osprey returning with food for their young. Please enjoy.
