Well, if I had a tripod, this would be quite the Superior Snap, but you get the idea, correctamundo? This is moon over North Carolina's Outer Banks. The only thing it has in common with the beaches of our more southern climes is that the ocean continues to pound the sandy dunes & we've landed smack-dab in the middle of some kind of Brown Pelican convention.
Yesterday, during a break in the sunning and shelling action, we had a little rain. Because the beaches were pretty much people-less, the pelicans came out to play, in a big way. At one point I counted close to 100 of these proud birds bobbing in the chilly surf.
I reckon the OBX pelicans invited their Louisiana brethren to summer here. Good idea. My friends down on the Gulf Coast~most notably Tara R. in FLA~say BP certainly has made a mess of things.
