Straggler? Early bird? Never left? Most white pelicans are up north this time of year.
Copied from my Facebook page after I got homedinoflagellates. The last being the creatures that create bioluminescence. My blades looked like the were on fire. In one part of the canal, bait fish scattered, glowing, with each dip of the paddle. Mullet passed by, glowing streaks betraying their presence. A great 3.5 hour paddle. A dolphin, not the one pictured, almost hit me head on. Rose out of the water and swerved at the last instant. Had two more vehicle-mammal close calls. The deer was a closer than the raccoon. Had to swerve to avoid the former as it crossed the road just east of the Black Point Wildlife Drive exit in the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge. Only drawback to tonight's paddle was it was to choppy and cloudy on the Indian River to catch the sunset
I landed at 9:05
