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.
