Please note: I am still reliant on the maritime satellite and hence cannot communicate with you until early next week! I am itching to catch up with you and your blogs! Until then, check out my new ship board friends…..They seemed puzzled by the fact that I liked them and are quite curious and unafraid!
They definitely follow the fish!
Once when my son was about three, a seagull swooped down, and snatched a stuffed Easter Chick from his Easter Basket.
With confidence my son Matteo informed me, “He’ll bring it back.”
I explained to him there was no way he would see that stuffed chick again but he was resolute.
Hours later, after our picnic and swim, the seagull swooped back with the chick in his beak. Matteo took out running down the beach after the gull, which dropped the chick on the sand. It had pecked out the stuffing.
Matteo returned quite triumphant with his gutless chick, stating, “I told you so.”
This is a true story.
You explain it to me please.
Cheers to you from the windy Mediterranean, waves 12 feet, wind 40 knots! It’s a bronco ride!!

Very kind. Thank you~

Visa versa to you Rebecca & thank you!
Fantastic photo’s. I love seagulls! About the story: your son was talking with the seagull, he probably saw him as a friend. Children have an open spirit for animals, so they can communicate with them without talking. I love this 🙂
Yes I believe you are right!! It turned out he was right too!!! 🙂
Oooh! I love these vibrant lovely photos, and what a character that seagull is! And very photogenic too 🙂
They are quite handsome aren’t they!! Cheers to you and thank you~
Wow! Those are impressive shots.
Thank you my friend…..very kind!
Loved the shipmates, Cindy. They’re like sailors though…, find ’em in every port !!! The close-ups are great character studies. I think I recognized one of them. She was a nun who taught my 3rd grade class. Have fun !!!
your shipmates are definitively friendly fellows…what a great story about your son…12ft high waves, oh my goodness, a bronco ride for sure!
It was really fun being tossed about….took photos of course!!! 🙂 Cheers to you~
Such amazing photos Cindy! Face to face with a gull is something I’ve never experienced before. 🙂
I was surprised by how close and curious they were and I grew up with them!! Thank you my friend~
So lovely to see the birds. You make friends everywhere. Gorgeous story about your son and the gull.
You my dear, are a gem!
Oh thank you. Can I be a sparkly one?
Amazing photos Cindy!
Thank you dear Fae!
Those seagulls look as though they are talking to you…
I know. They were so curious….I got the sense no one pays attention to them and they were surprised……odd isn’t it!
