A few weeks ago, as the children and I were splitting and stacking wood, Miss Serenity noticed a beautiful ballet happening above our heads. At first, I thought swans had taken to the sky, but upon further inspection, we found that we were witnessing the flying acrobatics of 15 white pelicans! What a gorgeous spectacle to behold! They flew over our heads, banking and gliding on unseen wind currents, for a full 20 minutes before soaring off toward the nearby lake. Although work halted so that we could enjoy the aerobatic display, it was well worth the delay.
Just another beautiful day in the American Redoubt!
