We went to Malibu this morning to celebrate Earth Day. We didn’t walk on the beach as it was high tide, and the waves were lapping right against the pilings of the houses.
While Coral Canyon Trail isn’t a long hike, it’s right off Pacific Coast Highway which means every bend in the path offers one another splendid view of either ocean, or hills, or both at once, and because we had a lot of rain last winter, the chaparral slopes are blooming with wild flowers of every conceivable color. Truly gorgeous, almost as though the hillsides were painted especially for Earth Day.
In addition to the flowers, the Pelicans also put on a show for us.
While we ate our fish and chips at Malibu Seafood – mmmmm very tasty as always – we watched them fly past.
The sky was full of flocks of birds, twenty or thirty birds at a time, going in a northerly direction along the coast. I have never seen so many pelicans flying together before.
They don’t migrate do they? Or perhaps it was an air show for Earth Day 🙂
We loved it all.
We sure are lucky to live in such a beautiful planet.
