Tell me a Story: December 2016

It’s December, a few days before Christmas and Tell me a Story is due to go live on New Years Eve.  I am not sure if we are going pull off the blog circle but I want to do my best to try.

This year has not been easy and the foot surgery recovery is still on-going.  The foot still hurts and swells but life goes on and I need to do my best to go along with it.

I think because I have been so home bound, Richard has decided that I need to get out.  So this particular day he suggested breakfast in Jupiter and then we’d head on over to a park that we had been to many years ago.  The park was not quite what I remembered by it sits on the edge of the Jupiter outlet, just across the inlet from the Jupiter tower.  I loved seeing the Pelicans.  I find them to be such graceful birds for their size.  It was also fun to see the boats going in an out – especially the Santa boat.

There were a number of pigeons on the rocks.

However, it is the Pelican that always catches my attention.  For such a bulky odd shaped bird, it’s grace always amazes me.

The Jupiter tower is an amazing piece of history, and yes, I have climbed to the top of it to view what the lighthouse master may have seen.

The water was fairly choppy and the waves were splashing against the pier.

I feel like this Pelican was taking a bow.  Actually it had just come in to land.

While sitting sedately on the rock, a boat motored out through the outlet to the ocean, resulting in a water splash up onto the Pelican.

Fishing off the pier is always an option.

Pleasure riding was just one of the activities.  Scuba boats headed out as well.

Thanks to the boats this Pelican is now wet and disgruntled.

Disgruntled and hungry – off to catch some fish.

Last but not least – only in South Florida will you see a Santa on a dive boat
