Just about nine miles up the road from where I'm staying, in a quite exquisite small B & B overlooking Spirit Lake, is the little town of Pelican Rapids. Through this runs the Pelican River, and overlooking the falls themselves is the largest plaster pelican I have ever seen. (That's unsurprising - a quick google search tells me that it's the largest pelican sculpture in the world. And I though that it was only Australia that went in for this kind of thing). And here are some more pelicans painted on a wall, which, in turn, belongs to an artificial windmill. Happily, there's only natural wildlife to be seen from our own tranquil balcony - and stars, and more stars.
