|Those are green parrots!! I was so surprised to see them.|
This time around I thought of the wonderful blogger who runs Elephant's Child immediately upon our arrival. She often posts pictures of some of the beautiful birds that come to visit her house, and I think she would have been delighted to see all of the green parrots flying around while I was there. I have been to the boardwalk many times and never seen them before, so I was surprised that there were so many!! They would come down, eat, and all fly back together into the trees, where if you hadn't just seen them, you wouldn't even know they were there. It was truly a spectacular sight to behold. I took this picture from far away with a telephoto lens so I wouldn't disturb them.
There are two sides to this park. One has boat ramps and a small beach, though you can't swim here. You can find coconuts though, and for some reason they always entice the kids there. My oldest two boys, have been known to take a coconut or two home and open them for the milk inside.
I like this side of the beach, and quite honestly am content to sit there quite a long time and just watch the boats come in and out.
This boat is a floating bar, I think!! I see it sometimes in various places where I go to spend time by the water. The people always seem very jovial and are waving, and it is certainly a unique looking setup.
It's interesting to see the different types of boats that move through this section. Do you see the gray boat on the right? It's pretty sleek looking, and I am supposing very expensive. I just hope it lights up like a Christmas Tree at night because it's pretty hard to see in the day time!!
Nature has a way of resetting you that just feels right.
Don't you think?
Sometimes they hang out alone but often they are seen in groups.
This pair here was pretty content to hang out together. I'd like to imagine they were good buddies just hanging out on the dock, enjoying their weekend. That's what I was doing, just hanging out by the dock, enjoying my weekend. I highly recommend such things to everyone. Being outside is so, so good for you! :) Thanks for stopping by, your visits are always very appreciated, and I hope you have a wonderful afternoon. As for me, I'm going to quit daydreaming about my weekend and try to sleep off this cold. Until next time...
