|Dad and the Little One|
An injury to my right elbow may keep me out of the kayak for a while; 6 to 8 weeks. Yesterday I had a cortisone shot and was hoping to feel better but nope...it did not happen. Could not stay in bed this morning and decided to pay another visit to the Eagle's Nest in the Econ. This time reached the area by land, using one of the trails in the Little Big Econ Forest. Had more than I was hoping for. The Dad dropped a fish to the eaglet and left but not before I was able to capture this scene.

|Dad came and dropped a fish on the nest|
|Lone Econ was so hungry that took a bite of daddy's claw|

Spent nearly two hours, mostly waiting for Lone Econ to take its first flight and/or for the parents to come. While Lone Econ almost took off twice did not do it. The parents did not come back while I was there. Anyways, other rives dwellers showed up and gave me pic chances.

This is it for this one. Am not sure how long will it take for me to go back to the water. Today, Sunday, the elbow is feeling much better after the cortisone shot, which is something I have no intentions to do again. Whenever that happens, stay tuned, will make an effort to bring you more views of Florida. Places to go are out there.
