Last photo stop of the day . . .

It's unusual for us to have pelicans in huge numbers this time of year; usually they're all in La Jolla by now. But apparently the food supply up here has been extremely good, so the pelicans are sticking around. As we approached Seal Rock, I could see a large flock sort of hovering about. I ran up to the top of a little hill and there in front of me were lots of pelicans all hunkered down on the side of an offshore rock. They're facing into the wind and every once in a while one would slowly swoop in and land or about 10 or so of them would just rise up in the air and then slowly settle back down.

It's been a good day. A really good day. May we all have many more like this. ©Carol Leigh
