Wave to the Pelican on the Outer Banks

In 2019, we went to the Outer Banks for Meera’s birthday. We visited from Corolla all the way down to Okracoke, taking in beaches and lighthouses and sand and sun.

Meera and I are not good at relaxing vacations. We’re always skiing or hiking or visiting museums or monuments. But on this trip, we spent an entire day at the beach, and I was able to be still long enough to take some great photos, including this one of a pelican above a crashing wave.

We should go back. If only RDU weren’t so far from the beach…

A pelican soars, wings outstretched, over a fiercely crashing wave. Brilliant white foam, deep blue sea, and sky blue horizon band the background.
