Pelican visit

Nature’s prime favourites were the Pelicans; High-fed, long-lived, and sociable and free.
James Montgomery, Pelican Island

The first pelicans I saw today were in flight … about a dozen soaring effortlessly overhead in formation. Their necks curled back, and beaks jutting forward like sharp knives. They swooped and soared.

Then came the landings on water. Oops.

This fellow later came in close, perhaps thinking I was gutting a fish and preparing to throw the entrails his way.

Meanwhile, I enjoyed the quiet of this slice of waterfront, which some decades ago, was apparently a caravan park.

Where are you now and which way are you heading?
I have some test booked in for next week (heart and eyes) and hope to get on the road from Victoria to Central Australia shortly after.
