Shalimar, Florida (Rest Day)

Rested at the Odoms’ today. Gene and I rode bikes to Destin (16 miles). Mickey took the day off to recover. The others, including Mickey, met us at Destin and we walked along the beach for 1/2 mile or so. Very good birding day.

Janette and Gene treated us to lunch. I had a fried oyster sandwich.

We then went to visit Gene’s brother, Jay. Hailey was there, but Jay was having dinner with the President. Yes, that one. Whatever.

Big dinner of boiled shrimp and trimmings.

Turned in early. Big day tomorrow. Gene will take us to De Funiak Springs to resume the tour. Rain predicted tomorrow.
