Distractions…

See that guy on the pier there?  He’s taking a picture of the sunset, while I, on the other hand, was paying attention to the pelican.  I couldn’t help myself though.  I was standing with lots of other people on a bigger pier just across from that one.  Pelicans and sea gulls were passing just over our heads and making assaults on fish in the water nearby.  This was causing tons of excitement for two little kids on the pier near me.  Every swoop was met with much laughing and squealing.  It is funny to hear them chattering in an unusual language, Dutch maybe, but their delight in the situation was universal.  Their mom will have her hands full with another one due fairly soon, or so it would seem.  I wish I would have had more wisdom while I was raising my kids, but on the other hand I was young enough to keep up with them, so I suppose it was a trade off.  In the throes of my divorce my ex told me that it was like I was a kid who grew up and was leaving home.  It made me mad at the time, but I have to admit that there was a grain of truth to it.

Other distractions that night were more birds, and just the lovely light falling here and there.  And the reflections…10-30dunedin210-30dunedin710-30dunedin1510-30dunedin13
