A goose on the beach - Skywatch Friday

I'm taking pictures of the baby skimmers and happen to look down the beach. I thought I must have had heat stroke when I saw a goose walking around the beach. I've never seen a goose on a beach in the Tampa bay area.

Then I realized what was going on. Barbara, the Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary hospital administrator, was taking the goose for a walk down the beach. He must be a resident of the sanctuary. Or he might be getting some exercise before he's released back in the wild.

He seemed very tame and enjoying his walk. He stayed pretty close to Barbara.

Short video of the goose walking back to the sanctuary.

Ahhh! The sun was going down. It was time to go home.

  16. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to
    her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it
    pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but
    I had to tell someone!

  19. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of
    your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to
    say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
