Look Who's Out My Window

Out the back of the Sea Loft is a well designed deck that juts out into some beautiful foliage. A couple of palmettos, pine trees, live oaks, and saw palms surround the platform.

While getting ready to leave for the day's activities, Steve and Z (who are always ready first) waited on the deck and were greeted with the swoosh of a great blue heron. He landed on a branch about 10 feet away from them and began his morning activities--eating bugs off dead twigs and preening his plumes.

Z came in quietly to tell Julie and me about him so we tiptoed out to watch. He was unfazed by our presence and continued his display as we watched and wondered.

Professor Plume, thanks for the close encounter.
