On our way home today. We fly out of San Francisco around noon, a short stopover in Los Angeles and then a straight through flight to Virginia. It has been a wonderful vacation but as always happens when I know our trip is coming to an end, I am looking forward to going home in true homing pigeon fashion.
We visited Fisherman's Wharf a couple of days ago. For those who have not visited before, my husband and I are on vacation and have been on a road trip taking in various sights from British Columbia to Monterey, California. Monterey was been very much a nostalgia trip for us as we used to live here for a couple of years back in the early 80's.
I love how the pelicans don't take any notice of you as you walk by. Yes they keep an eye on you to see what you are doing, but you can get some very close shots before going on your way.
I have not been around pelicans in several years. It has been a lot of fun to actually see them other than on the TV in some of my nature shows. A true gift! This one was sitting on the rail next to where several people were getting off a whale watching boat. He had his photo taken many times.
He had his back to me at first and while I was taking photos of another pelican, he turned around to see what I was doing.
