Splish-splash, taking a bath!

Sunday, 16 June 2013

Jacky and I walked down to the new Palo Alto breakfast house, which just opened in midtown. Not bad; we’ll be back.

Jacky went on to the gym, and I walked to the baylands, around the loop from the Mountain View pond to the Palo Alto duck pond and behind the airport and golf course. Another 13 miles on top of yesterday’s hike; it was about 2 miles further than I really wanted to walk, but who’s counting.

Amongst plenty of other shorebirds, it was pelican day. This one was having a wonderful time (camera in burst mode, so this is close to real-time).

And that coy little look over the shoulder, “Hopelessly spoiled? Who, me?”

    Your Pelican photo beats mine. Saw a few out in Saskatoon having a hard time finding a good place to land on the swift, swollen river. They always feed at the foot of the weir. The weir was no where in sight…
