Whilst sitting by the Maclean river, I was accompanied by a majestic pelican. His black and white plumage was engraved along the wide band of the expansive river skyline. Gliding in, he planted himself on the boat post, hunched with his web feet drawn up under his belly and his expandable throat pouch compacted resting firmly on his keel, he sat there silently enjoying the cool breeze, and watched the world silently pass by.
