Hello, Phil! Awesome birds and sightings. I can not pick a favorite, I love them all. I am sure you are having a grand time there. Have a happy Wednesday!

It's good that you are willing to sacrifice and take a break from swimming, sunning and sipping to keep us up to date on your frivolous pleasure-laden schedule. I can hardly wait to read of a frosty early morning start to a bird banding day back in Lancashire.

Your photo's are great but when enlarged they are truly GREAT!

Super selection of scenes, birds, restaurants, lighthouses and 'Thomas The Tank Engine'!!! Oh I smiled when I saw this, it's definitely a ride I'd enjoy with or without the grandchildren.

Enjoy the remainder of your stay and have a good journey back to the UK

All the best Jan
