Postcard From Half Moon Bay

Greetings from California where I'm on holiday this week. While I was checking out some crab boats yesterday at Pillar Point Harbor just north of Half Moon Bay, this pelican hopped aboard a bow in hopes of a hand out. Unfortunately for the pelican, Dungeness Crab was selling for $4/lb and it hadn't any cash :-).

These boats remind me of the fishermen in Mazatlan. Be still my heart!

What a great shot and the pelican posed just perfectly for you!

You are both a lucky and a patient photographer to get this shot.

It was the Pelican (a.k.a. Cormorant) that graced the hoods of classic Packards.

Thanks guys!
Hey Louis, Cormorants are different than Pelicans here on the west coast. I just took a photo of a gathering of both at Tamales Bay last week :-). I wonder about the Packard hood ornament?
