Sitting propped on our shop, the Pelican Book Boat is to be enjoyed by visitors and locals alike. Grab a coffee and a book, sit on a park bench and lose yourself . Or, take one home and return when ready or donate another to the mix.
My love of boats, books and community merged. I had a dinghy in mind, found a friendly capable, talented customer to take on the challenge…and Pelican Book Boat emerged.
He sits propped against the striped wall of the Pelican Boat Shop, carefully monitored by The Big Pelican. His nautical smile is smile inducing. Just knowing he’s there is pleasing.
Lots of tourists come walking along this path. Locals as well are frequent walkers. The Book Boat invites them to borrow and return , or grab a tome and stop for a read and a rest. Hard copy is still valued by many readers. Here, the book alive on for. A number of reads.
Inside, are all donated books, covering every genre, age and range of topic.
