Sarasota Bay on a clear, fall day.



White egret



Blue heron.



A modest cottage,



and the next door neighbor.

Oh wow, I'll take the neighbor house! Your recognition of bird species amazes me -- those two look alike to me, other than the color! And -- they both resemble storks! I really need to study up.

See the little garden shed to the left of the modest cottage? I'd be happy to stay there.

Ahhh, the circumstance that some people have to live under! That poor family is probably several million shy of being able to afford the Gulfsteam. Maybe November will bring some good news in that direction.

My husband's father and a couple of his sisters live in Sarasota. I recognize some of our photos. Looks like a pretty day for a visit.

Lovely pics. Personally, I'll take the the more modest house. It's better to own things than to be owned by them.

I like the modest cottage better, although I'm pretty sure the cost to buy it wouldn't be modest in that neighborhood. Beautiful pictures.

Love those birds! Blue herons are so beautiful they feel like they ought to be rare.

How nice that you were out and about. It must be quite pleasant where you are now.
