Islamorada Journal 2011...02-03 FEB


Looks like a nice, quiet morning out on the dock for the local Ibis flock.

Then, all of a sudden...

...a battle breaks out...lasts about 3 seconds...after which, order is restored.

Guess someone had to be put in his proper place in the stomping order.


Went over to visit Mike S. at the house we rented last year.

Mike's lab, Cody, put on a demonstration of the lab version of the dog paddle.


Mark went out fishing with me on Wednesday.

We did see four permit...got a shot [cast] at one of them, but no hookup.

Nice day...we had a good time...sloooooowww fishing.


We did see a pod of feeding dolphin...couple of them came over for a closeup.


As you can see from this pic, this dolphin's dorsal fin has been seriously damaged from being entangled with some sort of line...possibly a fishing net or fishing line.

Demonstrates why it's so important for fisherfolk to dispose of line properly, on land.


White pelicans have taken over the bus stop.
