Most every evening around 5-ish the bar crawls begin. But not just for us humans.
One of the most visible is the “Pelican” bar crawl. From the top deck of Mermaid’s Island Grill, the flights begin. East to west, (as we are a south-facing beach) As the evening drags on the flight path gets lower to the housetops and the formations are not as uniform.
With each back and forth passing some of the flocks have lost a few of their members. Now as I head home for the evening I join some pelican stragglers in the race to get home. We smile at each other, kindred spirits in flight … oops.
I could have sworn I could fly.
