We spent about an hour on the beach before my conference started, and then Mimi took over with beach and pool duty.
After lunch, we had great fun at the SPI Birding and Nature Center, walking their boardwalk and seeing lots of birds. Since Maya's class did a section on birds for Science this year, she's been bird-obsessed. We saw great blue heron, little blue heron, willet, red-winged blackbird, tricolor heron, and who knows what all else! Oh, yes, we also saw an alligator! Zoe was pretty pleased since she was apparently the first person of the day to spot one at the center. Forgot the camera, so you don't have to suffer through more pictures of that!
On to dinner, and then probably more pool and beach time this evening. Tomorrow morning is when my real conference work begins, and then over by noon and more fun in the sun! I'm pretty sure Zoe and Maya approve!
