I Spent the evening at a place called Spring Creek, located in Wakulla County Florida. It's a quaint fishing village that is still carrying on and passing the tradition along. I went there just for the Pelicans because I had been wanting to capture them for months and heard they stayed real close to the docks down in Spring Creek. I fell in love with the charm of the place and just the story it had to tell. Here is a sampling of life at Spring Creek and the Pelicans too.

Cleaning the day's catch...
I love these creatures! At times graceful and beautiful, and then others awkward and clumsy. I think he's in the graceful stage.
Love Catching Them In Flight, even if they never stayed center of the lens.
Did not catch this fellas name, but he's a fishing dog. He spent the whole day out with the fisherman. I am sure he was glad to be back on land.
The end of a long day. I can hear Otis Redding playing in my mind.
And among the other creatures calling Spring Creek Home are the Dock Cats
Some of these guys where limping along. I guess they haven't toughened up their paws for walking among the shells.
