We spent a week at our favorite campground on the Washington coast.
There is always something wonderful to see.
Our first evening gave us a beautiful sunset to enjoy.
The beach usually has some wildlife to photograph and enjoy.
These young Seagulls were enjoying trying out their wings out over the waves.
The smelt were running so the Pelicans came to get their breakfast on this beautiful morning.
After they had their fill they spend several minutes on the beach drying their feathers.
One of the older adults seemed to be keeping watch over the flock as they all stood around with their wings held in a open position.
When the time was right they all flew into the air about the same moment and headed home to their island out from the beach.
Strange place to live but it seems rather safe for all these big birds.
