Well, the summer heat at home didn't amount to much today, and the moment we crossed Skyline, the morning weather went from overcast with a promise of sun to foggy and drippy.
The actual weather at Gazos Creek was neither drippy nor particularly foggy, but it was overcast all morning and at least into the early afternoon, with no sign of clearing.

And, as promised, there were pelicans flying north.
I figure the pelicans all fly north, and disappear into the hole at the North Pole - the same hole the flying saucers come out of.
