Sitting on the Dock of the Bay

#doodlewashMay2021 prompt: Dock.

Did you know that a pelican’s jawbone bows outwards so they can use their beak’s gular sacs as fishing nets. Reference photo courtesy of Free-Photos on Pixabay.

Artist Ambassador for Zebra Pens. I'm a self-taught artist who dances about with all sorts of artistic mediums. My main loves are Watercolor, Zentangle and Ballpoint pen. The subjects of my work are many and varied and change at whim. I'm a little bit crazy, but doesn't that come with being an artist? At my Life Imitates Doodles Blog, I post a list of resource links for Tangles, Tutorials and Giveaways two times a week. I also write reviews, hold giveaways and share my art work.

  1. reminds me of home – Cedar Key, Florida, we went every summer for a week or two and stayed on the beach. they had a dock that looked much like this, with a pelican sitting on each post. great memories!

  2. Otis Redding would approve of the title! I love these pelicans distanced 6 feet apart for the pandemic. We once had a cold, slightly wounded pelican show up at my folks Hood Canal place. Dad would feed it at first. It stayed for over 6 months, sitting on our bulkhead, fishing, and very tame. Then one day, it just flew away, presumably to warmer climes….all well, and I assume, grateful for the seaside hospital. 😉
