Photos and movies by Ann Brundige. Godwits, gulls and curlew photographed in Scripps Marine Refuge, La Jolla, California. Pelican video from Bolivar Penninsula, Texas. Thanks to my daughter Ellen for letting me include the photograph of her and the sand castle. I'd give you the URL of her web page, but she has over 80 of them! Here is the link to her index. There are good biographical, science, and history web pages listed there. http://www.squidoo.com/greekgeeklenses
