A Pelican Comes to Visit

While Grampy and I were in the Bahamas and visiting Man of War Cay (sounds like key), a pelican came to visit us. Now, what makes this visit special is that pelicans are NOT native to the Bahamas. They are rarely ever seen here. This brown pelican came slowly swimming out from between a dock full of boats and when he could not find any fish to eat, he swam over to where our little sail boat was docked.

Watch his little back legs move smoothly through the water as he paddles all around the boats looking for some tiny fish. He came to visit us twice while we were at the dock. I liked watching him swim in between the boats, don't you? Love to all my ravs.
