Deck. We were enjoying the view of the beautiful water and skies on a pier in Naples, Florida.
I almost missed the view. I was overdressed in slacks and decided to wait at the entrance to the pier, drinking my coffee. My parents came to fetch me, telling me I am missing an experience. Indeed, I almost missed a show some wild dolphins put on for the entire beach.
While I was sitting in the shade, I watched animal patrol come to take away a massive pelican. It took a while for the human handler to win the battle of wills and stuff the feathered enemy in a small cage.
Seems that despite the large crowds, the land and ocean still very much belong to the animals.
