Rewind to another Thanksgiving back in 2015.
Blustery conditions marked a Thanksgiving eve sunset walk on the beach with Bob Bruce, Janice Broda, and the dogs, Pepper and Sam.
The sky was filled with Brown Pelicans who were having a terrible time flying against the strong wind.
Northern Gannets (Morus bassanus) flying over the tempestuous ocean included a dark juvenile with two white adults with black-tipped wings.
Storms often blow these pelagic birds closer to shore where the Gannets have little difficulty flying, unlike the Pelicans, against adverse weather.

Formation flying is a speciality with the Pelicans.

Pepper amazed everyone by carrying a heavy coconut she found on the beach all the way back to the house.
No heavy work for Sam who was just out for a stroll on the beach.
