While at Aquatic Park, on a photo walk, the other day I met this little Snowy Egret. Little Snow looks like a youngster yet. I had a blast following Little Snow down the beach and back watching the mad fishing skills. This was a good lesson in quick shots, as this busy fisherbird did not stand still long.
Do you need a staycation like yesterday? Here’s my favorite getaway in a day: Municipal Pier. The fishing is free of charge and requires no fishing license. The views are amazing, and the wildlife always shows up. You can pretty much guarantee to see seals, seagulls, ducks, crabs getting hauled up, fish on the lines, and my personal favorite: pelicans!
Here are a few shots from my Pelican Collection
Bring your favorite sketchbook, a camera, lunch, a fishing pole, warm clothes, and a chair. Seriously. Don’t forget a hat and a jacket, even on a sunny day, because the wind blows and it is always chilly out on that pier! But it’s so worth it. As you head out onto the pier you will feel the city fade away. Within minutes you are in a marine wonderland. Stay as long as you’d like. =)
