The Mucky Duck


The Mucky Duck is a popular restaurant on Captiva, an island just beyond the island of Sanibel, Florida.  The food at the Mucky Duck is good, but the setting might be even better, especially at sunset.  I think Susie still wears her old Mucky Duck tee shirt.

The Hartford Courant has a headline, "Potentially Historic Blizzard to hit Connecticut on Friday." Hartford is expecting up to two feet of snow today.  One forecasting service predicts snows up to three feet.  Good luck, folks.

This image is linked to James' website, Weekend Reflections, and to Skywatch Friday.

What a difference between the two parts of the country! It rained heavily here in Charleston, but the area needs moisture so no complaints. This area of Captiva looks divine...one could almost "worship" that scene.

Beautiful light, Jack.

We are getting snow here in Ontario too. It's actually very pretty as long as you don't need to drive anywhere. :))

The Mucky Duck is a favorite with the entire SDP staff. It's changed somewhat, though, since it was sold recently. My favorite time to go out there is between Thanksgiving and Christmas -- pleasant weather, zero noseeums and few tourists. Enjoy the sun and warmth, Jack!

I was curious whether you are down in Florida rather than in Connecticut for the big storm. This time you are in the right place at the rigtt time.

Karen Xavier said...

What a serene picture... the sun looks beautiful caressing the waves.

Cindy said...

A beautiful scene. Wish I was there! Time to get ready for the storm, which they are calling "Nemo."

Good place to be right now..and lovely colors in that sunset.

Looks like a perfect unobstructed view.
I just took a look at a New York web cam to see if it had started to snow but, all I saw was rain. But, it sounds like the north easterners will be digging out soon.

What a contrast between the serene photo and the menacing weather in Connecticut...

Sylvia K said...

Awesome capture, Jack!! And aren't you glad you're not in Connecticut right now!!! The East coast has had more than their share of crappy weather that's for certain!! Enjoy your warm and sunny weekend!

Lowell said...

We've eaten at the Mucky Duck - a long time ago. Fun place. And aren't you glad you're not stuck up in Hartford?

Did you ever notice how everybody is a photographer these days?

PerthDailyPhoto said...

I'd rather like a 'Mucky Duck' tee shirt Also Jack, very cool. What a glorious sunset..how warm does it get in Florida Jack? For example here in Perth the next four days the weather is going to be over 40C, how does this compare..what I'd give for a frosting of snow!

We live in a shrinking world, where you know home has snow, but you toast your sunset with barefeet in the sane.

William Kendall said...

What a view, Jack!

Reading this now a few days after that storm. Connecticut got hammered!
