|Those are green parrots!! I was so surprised to see them.|
This time around I thought of the wonderful blogger who runs Elephant's Child immediately upon our arrival. She often posts pictures of some of the beautiful birds that come to visit her house, and I think she would have been delighted to see all of the green parrots flying around while we there. I have been to the boardwalk many times and never seen them before, so I was surprised that there were so many!! They would come down, eat, and all fly back together into the trees, where if you hadn't just seen them, you wouldn't even know they were there. It was truly a spectacular sight to behold. I took this picture from far away with a telephoto lens so I wouldn't disturb them.
I told my son to go closer to get a look, but of course they weren't having that, and when he got too close for their comfort, they promptly flew away.
There are two sides to this park. One has boat ramps and a small beach, though you can't swim here. You can find coconuts though, and for some reason they always entice my child. His brothers can get them open, but he's too young to use a sharp tool, so of course he cannot and we always leave them behind where we found them.
I like this side of the beach, and quite honestly am content to sit there quite a long time and just watch the boats come in and out.
This boat is a floating bar, I think!! I see it sometimes in various places where we go to spend time by the water. The people always seem very jovial and are waving, and it is certainly a unique looking setup.
It's interesting to see the different types of boats that move through this section. Do you see the gray boat on the right? It's pretty sleek looking, and I am supposing very expensive. I just hope it lights up like a Christmas Tree at night because it's pretty hard to see in the day time!!
I think he got some good pictures
I get excited about the pelicans, every single time. They are absolutely my favorite birds to watch while we are there, and I never mind spending a huge chunk of my time watching them on and around the water. There is a piece of pier behind my son here that was damaged, so they have fenced it off. The pelicans seem to find it the perfect place to sit and rest.
Sometimes they hang out alone but often they are seen in groups.
This pair here was pretty content to hang out together. I'd like to imagine they were good buddies just hanging out on the dock, enjoying their weekend. That's what my boy and I were doing, just hanging out together, by the dock, enjoying our weekend. I highly recommend such things to everyone. Being outside is so, so good for you! :) Thanks for stopping by, your visits are always very appreciated, and I hope you have a wonderful day!
