Thou Shalt Not Steal Fish

We had a delightful (if too short) visit a couple of weeks ago from Curtis' brother and his sweet little family. We drove up to Newport Beach and spent the day there, followed by a yummy pizza dinner outside. The kids (and adults, for that matter!) were very entertained by this pelican that was just meandering along the pier, waiting for a chance to snatch a fish or two out of some unsuspecting fisherman's bucket. He would even let the kids get close enough to pet him! The high excitement of the day was when this pelican attempted to steal a fish right off of a fisherman's pole! Yes, the pelican got stuck on the hook. Luckily, the fishermen were able to free him without too much trauma to the bird, as he came right back a few minutes later!
