I met a dinosaur

We went for a long walk on the pier at the beach and met this guy, up close and personal and he was amazing.

I have never seen a pelican so close and was surprised that he was unfazed and relatively calm about so many people taking his picture. He also opened his HUGE beak and showed us his throat pouch, but the camera missed that shot.

As we walked further down the pier, we came across a few more pelicans. They were less colorful, but just as comfortable in our presence.

We got to the end of the pier and watched the waves and occasional swimmer and surfer before we headed back and ran into our first pelican buddy in his same resting spot.
