|1) Had planned to do the Mobile River loop but decided to stay in calmer waters today. It was pretty in Lower Crab Creek.|
|2) Pelicans taking off in Polecat Bay.|
|3) Gulls on the move.|
|4) Saw two Eagles today. Looks like this one has taken over an old Osprey nest.|
|5) This river dog was of respectable size.|
|6) Taking a stretch and snack break. I planned on coming back in the dark - hence the 360 degree light.|
|7) Blackbirds resting on an old duck blind to watch the sunset on Big Bateau Bay.|
|8) Mardi Gras colors on the downtown buildings. This was a wonderful paddle!|
