Midday on the ICW

We are definitely in Florida. It's hot. It's humid. It's sunny. And we are working our way down toward Titusville. Right now, we're on the Indian River. We've had the morning dolphin show with the prerequisite two dolphins. Terry claims to have seen a manatee. We've seen lots of birds.

Birds perched on marks.

Pelicans sitting on sandbars.

And birds sitting on big signs.

And, just this minute, we had an osprey vs. eagle fight! The osprey had knocked the eagle down into the water, and it kept coming back to try to keep the eagle down. The eagle finally caught a few seconds to get his wings out of the water long enough to take off. He made it into the air, and the osprey was NOT happy. More aerial combat until the eagle got enough speed on to get away. Yes, Dear Readers, there are no pictures. It was a little too far away for the IPad, and it happened so fast that the cameras on board never got out on the deck. A little excitement for the afternoon! Can't wait to see what happens next.
