My first morning waking up in Florida! How awesome! Strange bird noises, sound of Clearwater Bay waters, the toot of “Little Toot” signaling it’s departure from home dock. I want to see all the strange sights and sounds right away, to witness a sailboat hoisting her sails to catch an easterly breeze across the Gulf of Mexico. Wait, there’s a huge fishing charter boat being towed to safety back to harbor. It’s all new! It’s all exciting to my mid-western/Michigan eyes and ears.
My friends and I walk the fishing pier and watch as pelicans vie for their place in line for generous fishermen to throw remains of their day’s catch and great white egrets with yellow beak and shorter snowy egrets all eager for the day’s spoils.
I could learn to love this place!
