Yesterday, after a looooong day of glazing for me and a loooooong day of watching Wimbeldon for Nick, Nick suggested we head to the beach for an evening walk, followed by beers and pizza at Pepe’s, probably our favorite spot in Rincon. Fine idea!

During our walk, from a distance, I noticed some seemingly variegated sea-grape plants. I’ve never seen this plant with partially white leaves, so was quite curious and approached for a closer look:

In close proximity, we noticed a “variagated” unhealthy looking coconut palm…hmmm! The plot thickens!

On our walk back, the mystery plant “disease” source was revealed: A flock of hundreds of pelicans roosted in a large tree. We’re glad that they, unlike us, didn’t decide to live up in the hills!
