Nothin' but blue skies .. all day long

Couldn't help but have that song of yesteryear in my head as I edited these photos from last Sunday.  Was on a bit of a excursion hop that day from one location and onto another, photo-shopping.  The weather was so perfect and too good to stay at home; I can do that on any bad-weather day. 

Parked at Pelicans Wharf, Terilbah Reserve, and started the walk across The Entrance bridge, a little hike in itself:




that walk was well rewarded, not only from the views on each side but also, when I came across this majestic pelican.










Should I've only selected one photo from these?  It was too hard to choose which one to single out.... I knew you'd enjoy a super dose of the blue skies anyway, admit it.

How hard it is to hold back on its feathered-friends on the other side. By mid next week though, I'll be sharing a plethora of posts from pelican paradise; can you handle it?!  Hope so.

Magnificent birds; wish we had them here. In lieu of the birds themselves I look forward to some more great photos in the next few days. Thanks.

Love these pics. The blue sky made it complete. Talking about blue skies, we had blue skies all last week, the difference: we had -4 C degrees.....cann't wait for spring to come. Enjoy your photo-shopping Carole so we can enjoy too.
