Evening on the Pier

A couple nights ago we met my niece and her family for dinner at the beach. A long fishing pier was nearby, so we walked it and found the following:

I love old beach cruisers, especially when they look all rusted and stuff. Can you tell it was really cold and windy that night? I had on a jeans jacket, but it was barely enough to keep me warm. We’ve been having pretty bizarre weather lately–cool, cloudy and humid. Probably the aftereffects of tropical storms in Mexico.

Then there was this creature:

I’ve never been this close to a pelican! I inched closer and closer, hoping he wouldn’t take flight. This was taken with an iPhone, no zooming, so you can see how near I was. Right after I took the shot, the pelican took off.

Hope your week’s going well so far.

    I love that pier/bike rust theme photo. That’s a postcard shot ( the blue thingy would need to go though) but so is the pelican. We’ve got some weird weather. We had a tropical rainfall yesterday. I had to run five meters from the car to the door and was drenched. Last year already we started to get tropical storms. Not what you’d associate with Switzerland, right?

    • Thanks, Caroline. I wish I could have moved that blue tarp, but it was covering something too heavy to move, unfortunately.
      Tropical storms in Switzerland? That is unimaginable.

  6. Great shot of the pelican. Pelicans are impressive birds. It looks like this one is banded on his ankle. I wonder if he’s being monitored by a wildlife group.
