seagulls and me

Lots of people think of seagulls as nuisances, but I love them. I find it fun to get them flying up to catch a piece of bread or whatever I happen to have saved for them.

They are beautiful birds and each has their own personality. There are bullies, some are bashful and fearful, some are brave and some seem to be adventurous. They can be very aggressive towards each other when it comes to food; and that reminds me of people and how we fight for what’s ours.

They’ll stick with me until every last morsel has been gleaned from the concrete or sand where dinner was served. And then when I drive away, they walk away en mass, knowing the party is over.
