Where I stayed
In the last week we have walked the ocean, participated in more fun beer tastings, gone out to Tybee Island to visit one our favorite haunts, The Crab Shack and enjoyed the extraordinary weather
Yesterday we went back to the Laurel Hill drive looking for good birds. What we spotted the Northern Harrier Hawk again but also several Merlins (our best guess) along with all sorts of ducks and wading birds. What we saw unexpectedly was a bobcat and two black bear cubs (didn't spot the mother but I am sure she was around).
We toured around with our friend Byron and then Ken's Mom and brother, Kevin. Ken, Byron and Kevin played golf one day. We have now moved to another villa that is on the ocean and is wonderful, apparently the best villa on the property. Yesterday I spotted two woodstorks and an anhinga in the salt marsh.
Today has been low key, guests have all gone, We are going to go to a couple a movies and just take it easy on a cool cloudy day.
Saw Iron Lady, we really thought that Meryl Streep was extraordinary, and in spite of the mostly bad reviews, we found the movie interesting. Then, in a movie double header, we saw the Swedish version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Very interesting to compare this movie with the American version. The Swedish version was more true to the book.
So here's some pics and good night to all.
