Board Meeting, Birds, Beach
February 24, 2022
I had a zoom Board meeting to attend this morning a 8 local time. The sun is so bright at the table in the bungalow I moved my computer to the lanai which is more shaded. However, the sound of the surf and the jets departing the airport made it a bit challenging. I should say loud. Oh well, it only lasted 90 minutes.
Lynn had classes this morning so after the meeting I took my bike out to look for birds. The problem was it was so darn windy. I saw the usual mynas and doves and the plover that’s always in the same area but not much else. So I looked for anything moving in the wind. I found this moth:
Don’t see it do you? Neither do I. It looks like an aerial photo of the Mato Grosso forest. Do we see the moth here:
and here too:
Maybe not here. I must have been a sight, chasing the moth with my camera:
The wind blew this nest out of a tree. Wish I knew who built it:
Lynn took some pictures on her walk on the pedestrian bike path that skirts the airport. I think she cut it short because of the wind. The wind, for the last few days, has been blowing at 20-30 miles an hour. And the temps are in the low 80s. Here’s a departing plane crossing the path she’s on:
It’s been so windy that not too many people are at Baby Beach. When the wind is at 20 mph+ it blows the sand. Lynn calls it micro-dermabrasion. The tide is really low in this picture but it shows the reef that creates the protected area aka Baby Beach. Good for bringing babies:
Not too many people in the water:
Another great day.
