Welcome to my weekly update for May 9, 2021!
Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there! We celebrated early with my in-laws last week. It was nice to spend a long weekend with them. I won’t be seeing my own mom today but we’re planning to see her and the rest of my family in about a month! I haven’t seen any of them since February 2020.
Friday was an exciting day for me on Siesta Key! I noticed a crowd gathered ahead of me on my morning walk. As I got closer, I realized that some sort of ship was grounded on a sandbar, not very far offshore. A smaller boat was hovering around and I can’t find anything about it on the news, so I assume that whomever was onboard got away safely. Quite a bit of debris had washed ashore though.
I also saw my second yellow-crowned night heron! I took the picture in the water a couple of weeks ago; the sandy picture is from Friday.

I’m still struggling a bit with a reading slump but middle-grade books seem to fit my current mood. I may stick with that theme a bit longer.
