A trip to Monterey Bay California is always fun. The Brown Pelicans are rather mellow and laid back, as one would expect in California. There are a few trawlers left in the bay, but nothing like the mighty fleet that used to fish here. At a restaurant, I asked what the local catch of the day was. The waitress replied, “Alaskan halibut.” Maybe I should have asked this juvenile Brown Pelican what he was having back in 2008 when I shot this.
