Front Cover
Tidewater Publishers, 1991 - Diners (Restaurants) - 30 pages
For years Sid and Sal lived the lives of two typical ospreys, nesting on top of a dead pine at the edge of a peaceful cove. When their tree was knocked down to make way for the Cozy Cove Condos, Sid and Sal found a new home on a channel marker at the mouth of Shady Creek. The marker was so spacious, in fact, that they decided to open a restaurant there, too -- The Channel Marker Diner.Just when word was getting out about Sal's delicious perch potpie and tasty swamp muffins, disaster struck in the form of a high-speed powerboat. The marker -- nest, diner, and all -- was destroyed. But in a surprise happy ending, the ospreys find themselves an even better home. They also discover the value of hard work and just how famous they've become all over the Chesapeake Bay.
