After church we headed to the Red Barn to get fruit and produce. It is a huge outdoor and indoor market with plenty of good looking produce to choose from. Then to Wal-Mart for some additional groceries, arriving back at the CG around 12:45. We had a light lunch and I decided to go to the CG pool. It was such a beautiful day with lots of sunshine and temperatures in the mid to upper 70''s. It would have been a good beach day, but both of us decided we needed to have a slow down day. Ken stayed back to read and take a nap. At 4:45 he met me at the shuffleboard courts and we played 2 games - we each won one! The courts are on the CG lake, and while we were there Ken got so excited. A roseate spoonbill landed on the water right where we were playing. The photographer swung into motion. Certainly made Ken's day - he considered it a special gift!

They really are such beautiful and unusual birds!
Back to Waldo by 5:30 to do some blogging and get dinner started. Ken grilled while I made salads. Then he rode bike to the pool area to get some pictures of the sunset. He always get such great sunset photos there every year. Then a bonus - 2 roseate spoonbills! Talk about a lucky day!
