Blitz!!!111!! Looks like we have fish out there this AM

It looks the good part of this week’s vacation is over.

Bonus Shot: Seeding the beach with Home Decor Accessories (a.k.a. "sticks") turned out to be a really good way to lure the Osprey to the camera. Tyrion shops on the beach yesterday afternoon.
