~ Out my Front Window ~


Sitting on my sofa this morning I looked up to see my resident pelican sitting on our yellow boat out front [excuse my toes!]. He was basking in the sun. Resting. I thought it might make a nice shot for today's post. You see I am packing my bags and heading to Hamilton Island for a little break. I need to recharge with some Margaritas, poolside. And with no children or husbands accompanying us, I think myself and my girlfriends will be having a slightly good time. Talk soon. Simone xx

  24. Pelican wisdom meanings:
    * Proper use of abundance
    * Control of ego
    * Recovery from loss
    * Ability to float through emotions
    * Ability to return from the edge of extinction
