Crooked Island trip

Photography is one of those art forms that travels easily. All you need is a camera and a laptop! I love to post photos, especially travel photos, on Facebook and share my adventures with my friends. When we're in Florida, I really love taking pictures of the birds. From those big, graceful Pelicans to the little sand pipers that chase the waves, I love to photograph them all.

I took a jaunt last Thursday to Crooked Island beach (on the northern edge of Mexico Beach, Florida). It is supposed to have great shelling, especially sand dollars. It was a 60 mile round trip so I was a little peeved when I arrived and saw that the forestry people were there doing a controlled burn and had the access way blocked with their truck. Grrrr!  SO... I stopped in Mexico Beach to check out the beach there because I had never been on that beach before. Not such a great beach but lots and lots of birds, probably because there weren't any people around. I got some great pictures - my favorites were of the little terns (like a sea gull) with their tufted heads. They looked like they were having a very "Bad Hair Day" - just might have to do a scrap book page featuring those little birds!
