Ahhh. Glorious pelicans, goodbye until another day. Tomorrow I fly home while you continue to patrol your magnificent beach. I shall think of you while I’m home. I’ve enjoyed watching you fly your sky parade in front of my seventh floor deck, and find you the most regal of birds! I saw you wink at me yesterday, and although I know you wanted my most favorite Cheez-Its, I think there was a little more to your flirtation. I almost wish I had shared them with you. Perhaps then you would have sat on my deck and we could have shared our secrets. I feel I understand you better now. In so many ways I envy your freedom to stay, to just throw yourself into the wind and enjoy the beach in ways I will never know. I will miss you as I visit the beaches along Washington State. I will dream of you, and your warm beach. Until next time. . .I’ll meet you on the seventh floor deck. . .
