Ms G and I went to a restaurant called The Oaks for dinner tonight. It is built like an old Florida home with lots of oak trees around the grounds. They have great grouper sandwiches.

We were seated next to a window. Just outside the window was a very large oak tree.

As we were sitting there I saw a squirrel running around the limbs.

It was interesting but out of nowhere came an osprey. Ospreys are eagle like birds of prey. Very large and very powerful. He went right after the squirrel. It took him only a few seconds to catch the squirrel. We could hear the squirrel screaming as the osprey was killing him. The osprey then took off with the squirrel in his mouth.

Great dinner entertainment.

Last weekend I watched a lot of osprey. Beautiful creatures. I didn't get to see them kill anything though. I also saw 2 eagles. They are incredible to watch. So majestic. Next time I'm going to bring a squirrel with me.

Very good grouper and great crab cheese soup. Great place for a Friday night meal. Really great when an osprey can join you for supper.

It is just down the road from the Confederate cemetery.
