From Herons and Egrets to Key Lime Pie

Herons and egrets are especially beautiful residents of marshes, rivers, and beaches all over the country.
We sometimes overlook them because we see them in so many places. 
On a dock near Goose Island State Park, Rockport, Texas.

Four egrets and herons of different species, and one white ibis with a turned-down beak.
An egret in a duck pond in a park in Rockport.
A white ibis -- often seen in the same marshy habitat as the herons.
Maybe more dramatic: black skimmers, Goose Island State Park. 
And for contrast with the birds:

Dinner at Charlotte Plummer's seafood restaurant, Rockport.
Key Lime pie was on the menu at several places where we ate.
