We walked down to the corner for lunch today [fried shrimp sandwiches ... right tasty]. On our way back, my wife pointed up to the sky just offshore. 'Look, frigate birds.' And so there were, two of them, just hanging up there like something from the age of dinosaurs. Our neighbor said that they blow in on strong south winds such as we've had lately. Last Sunday while I was doing my daily power amble, I spotted an osprey, the big fish hawk, between the harbor and The Hole. Herself saw the same bird the next morning. Ospreys are magnificent birds and always a buzz to spot. Last evening, a spoonbill cruising over the bay was a moving spot of shocking pink, unmistakable and arresting. Life in **Adrift has many interesting moments.
