This pelican is gorgeous!  The yellow head, the blue eye, the white neck.


and lovely.

He/She just sat on the dock railing and let me take pictures.









Then we went canoeing on the back bay.

Besides the beautiful white pelicans, who take off with a whip of black on the end of their wings, lifting off one by one, following each other in a undulating line of rolling white. — there were also these pipers — small, brownish birds with long legs clustered on a spit of stones in high tide.

Couldn’t get enough of them.

The shadows are as cool as the birds.

Love Birds Birds Birds.

Love to you all for Valentines Day. xo Laura

    I love pelicans. They taste like chicken.

    I love reading your adventures. I feel like i am there with you and really wished I was!!
    I think the only problem you are going to have is next year when you go back to Florida, you had better make sure you have room for all of us to come and visit!!
    We will be in New Hope from March 15-26th. Hope you are there.
    Love you,

    Laura, you make the old saying, “You’re for the birds” a compliment. Happy Valentine’s Day, my dear. Give your valentine a hug for me and Joan. xox

    Reminds me of the sandpipers in Monterey. They are always an inch away from the water as it goes in and out.
