We like to walk to the beach harbor at Oceanside to watch the activities of people and the pelicans that hang around the fishing boats docked at the harbor. The pelicans will follow the fishing boats that return from the ocean into the harbor knowing that there is possibility of getting fish treats from the boat crew. We love to watch the pelican squadrons fly above us with confidence and gracefulness. It’s a very relaxing feeling to stop and observe them.
While sitting on a bench at the harbor, we spotted a large heron balancing with ease on one long leg at the edge of the dock. I could not see the other leg since it was in the shadows. It had its neck angled to enable it to see any fish under water that might be swimming past. I don’t think it was a good moment for fishing since we did not see it dart its beak into the water.
