The Wildlife of St. Augustine...

Instead of ghosts today I thought I would show you the neat critters
we saw while out on the boat and in the marina.

In front of the boat we saw lots of dolphins, they also hung out just outside of the marina

On the dock we saw this cool big bird...

and in the water we saw lots of sea turtles, they were so cute! they were eating the barnacles along the docks

The wildlife did not end there... here is a Pirate ship,  Matey!!!!!
She was docked at the marina behind the big sailboat.

We are about to leave on a nice ride, but first before we go home I though I would share this pretty sunset

Mom says this is the best wildlife picture she took!
Anticipation is the best word for this look!

Some most curious wild life. That bird is HUGE! I would not mess with him.

Hey there Kira
Those pictures are absolutely beautiful! Congratulations on capturing it all. We love all the animals, birds and sea creatures - your turtle photo is wonderful in that we have never seen them at all. Thank you so much for posting them all...your beautiful sunset is stunning too, as is Kira.
Have a good trip home.

Oh Kira, you do look very beautiful in that last pic! We liked seeing the other pics too - cool turtle! We have never seen anything like that - do you think they would find Scotland too cold?

Hi Kira
All the wildlife pictures are great, but I agree with your Mom, the one of you is best of all (although the turtles do run you a close second, I'd say).
Cheers, H.

One of Momma's favorite things about visiting FL is the dolphins. And she tries to not think about sharks when she's in the water.

Hey, the hoomans that first adopted me lived in St. Augustine. I even had a check up there. Dad even took me and Essex back to see them once.

Wow! My mom is so jealous that you got to see dolphins and sea turtles! To tell you the truth, I'm a little jealous myself.
