Mostly Pelicans

Fun for Some

Spotted about a mile offshore ... You can count 12 seasick men (there's a reason they are all right at the rail) with nothing better to do than stand around in the wind and cold having spent $70 or more for the privilege of trying to bag some careless rock cod they could buy at Safeway for $6.95. Seriously, looks like good fun and very popular in the area.

Not Pelicans

This is some sort of sea duck not yet identified but quite common. Usually seen in a great hurry to be somewhere else. These were a good 500 yards off-shore which is about as close as you ever see them.
