Emerald Isle 28, Rochester 30

When we woke up this morning, we were surprised to learn that it was 2 degrees colder at Emerald Isle, NC than in Rochester, NY. The two big differences were that it was snowing in Rochester and it reached 60 degrees by noon in Emerald Isle. Sunday we are suppose to see 70 degrees.

Today, we walked the Cedar Point Tidewater Trail at Croatian National Forest. We were trying to sneak up on a Snowy Egret and almost walked right into two Green Herons perched on the bridge that we didn't see. The birds were so close that I couldn't get them both in the same photo. The park is beautiful and is suppose to be a great spot to catch sunsets.

Did George and Kim Arrive at Emerald Isle Early?

We thought they were here two weeks early when we saw the above license tag in the parking lot but later decided that they must only be the #2 Fan of the Yankees.
