THIS WAS THE HIGH LIGHT OF MY TRIP BECAUSE
I HAVE NEVER BEEN ABLE TO GET UP CLOSE
AND PERSONAL WITH PELICANS BEFORE.
HUBBY AND I DECIDED TO TAKE A TRIP TO
DAUPHIN ISLAND.  WE HAD TO TAKE THE FERRY
BOAT TO IT.  WHICH WAS FUN IN ITSELF. WE
DROVE THE TRUCK ONTO THE FERRY AND NO
SOONER THAN WE DID THIS; WE SAW PERCHED
PELICANS JUST HANGING AROUND THE FERRY. 
NORMALLY SEE THEM FLYING AND DIVING FOR
FISH OUT IN THE OCEAN.  IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL
DAY AND IT WAS TO  FUN TO RIDE ON THE FERRY
BOAT. 

DAUPHIN ISLAND IS A LITTLE COMMUNITY UNTO
ITSELF.  WE RODE AROUND AND WE PATRONIZED
ONE OF THE GIFT SHOPS THERE.  YOU CAN SEE
THE USUAL BEACH HOMES ON THE PRIVATE BEACH.
WE STOPPED AND WALKED AWAYS DOWN THE
THE BEACH. OF COURSE,  I HAD TO GET MY FEET
WET. WE BOTH FOUND SOME SHELLS FOR OUR
LITTLE GRAND-DAUGHTER.  THEY DO HAVE THEIR
PUBLIC PUBLIC BEACH. ALSO.  YOU HAVE TO PAY 
AN ADMISSION FEE. THEIR BEACH HAS SOME
BROWN SEDIMENT IN IT'S SAND.  SO, THE BEACH 
SAND IS NOT AS WHITE AS THE SAND AT GULF
SHORES OR AT ORANGE BEACH.  LAST BUT NOT
LEAST, AS WE WERE DRIVING AROUND WE SAW
A MARINA SO WE DECIDE TO STOP AND WALK
THROUGH IT.  WOW, TO MY AMAZEMENT. I SPOTTED
A BEAUTIFUL BROWN PELICAN PERCHED ON ONE
OF THE DOCK'S POSTS. THE ONLY NAME I KNOW
FOR THESE PARTICULAR PELICANS ARE BROWN
PELICANS.   ALSO, TO MY AMAZEMENT THESE 
PELICANS WERE AS CURIOUS OF ME AS I WAS
ABOUT THEM.  OUR LITTLE GRAND-DAUGHTER
WOULD HAVE LOVED SEEING ALL THE BEAUTIFUL
PELICANS.  SEVERAL BEGAN FLYING AROUND
ME.  I TRIED HURRYING' TO GET OUT MY CAMERA, 
BUT, I ONLY CAUGHT THE TAIL-END OF THEIR VISIT. 
I HEARD A LOT OF SEAGULLS AND SAW SOME
MEN FEEDING FISH ( I BELIEVE LEFT OVER BAIT
OR LEFT OVER CATCH) TO PELICANS THAT WERE
IN THE WATER.  THESE PELICANS WERE BEAUTIFUL. 
THEY HAD, WHAT LOOKED LIKE. WHITE CAPS ON
THEIR HEADS.  SO, MAJESTIC, SO STRONG A BIRD. 
THIS JUST MADE MY VACATION.  I REALLY WANTED
TO SEE SOMETHING DIFFERENT ON THIS TRIP THIS
TIME AND BEHOLD I DID!  IT IS SO WONDERFUL
BEING A CHILD OF THE MOST HIGH GOD!
