We took a ride out to Cedar Key for some of Tony's famous clam chowder. It was beyond delicious! Afterwards, we drove around the island where I spotted this Belted Kingfisher sitting by the Gulf. I've been trying to get a decent picture of this bird for several years - but they never sit still long enough. This one did. It's funny because my sister (http://quilterb-bethsblog.blogspot.com/2012/11/finally-kingfisher.html) just took some fabulous pictures of the same bird.
This one must be a male as I don't see a brown stripe.
This pier has seen better days but the many birds didn't care. I just think it's a neat picture.
