A Great View

I love a GREAT restaurant with a GREAT view. 

Such is Lone Cedar Cafe near Manteo, N. C. We got a waterfront table. The food was wonderful. I'd sure recommend it for anyone going in that direction. 

And, I had a window seat!! An osprey nest just about 40 or 50 ft. from me and what did I do? I left my camera back at the house we are staying at. I was just sick! My advice... don't ever leave home without your camera.

Sure, I had my cell phone. But, I prefer my Cannon sureshot.  Try taking pictures with a cellphone from that distance, through a window! But, I did enjoy my meal, most of it with me staring out the window while I chewed. 

There was a small pergola with feeders hanging from it and the birds were loving that. I saw some sort of black bird (I can never tell those apart), finches, red-wing blackbirds and more. Again, just sick that the camera was not with me. 

Here are some of the pictures i got.

She's on the nest....

Here comes hubby with a fish, just for her.

He sits guard while she eats.


  1. Oh, I would have been just sick, too, without my camera, but the photos you did get look good!
    The dark birds in the last photo look like Pigeons to me. I am just going by their shape - long oval bodies with small heads.
    And Pigeons can have various markings, and they look darker in the shade than in bright sunlight.
    Have a wonderful week!

  2. Oh how often I have left my camera behind... Good advice! One never knows when a special moment will arise.


I hope you will visit often and leave a comment when you do. My blogging friends always put a smile on my face.
