the tide is high

and there's a million bluebottles at two of our three beaches. Been blowing an easterly, apparently. So not much time in the ocean for us lately. But yesterday we got to meet some pelicans up close. They were hanging around a man who was gutting fish on the rocks. We stood about a metre away and watched as the pelicans fought by biting each other's beaks. Looked pretty painful. I never realised pelicans' legs were so blue. It's such an artificial color, it looks as if they're wearing rubber boots or washing-up gloves.
"Arrrk, aark," they complained. Harley was transfixed.
God, I love it up I think I've mentioned once or twice before.......
