THEY'RE BACK!

The pelicans have returned to the Pelican Pond.  They are always such a welcomed sight for the residents here in town.  The pond itself was going to be filled in by the owners but the towns folk got a petition going, had a couple of townhall type meetings and was able to convince the owners to let it stay.  A gazebo was just erected on one side of the pond so people can rest and enjoy the view.

I took Becca and her friend with me yesterday to get some pictures.  Becca, like her brothers and sister, has a deep appreciation for nature, but her friend has not yet learned to enjoy the world around her.  It was fun watching her actually seeing things for the first time but it was like taking an elephant through a china store.  That child made so much noise many of the creatures heard us coming and were gone before we could get close.

A mighty bird is the pelican,
Whose mouth can hold more than his belly can
But I don't know how the hell he can!

My late grandfather taught me that one as a kid.
