I am not a big fan of the beach from about May to September, too many people, too many exercise bunnies taking over the sidewalk, and too much sun. So for me to go down to the beach the other night with my walking buddy was quite a feat. We even paid the exorbitant sum they demand for parking. But we got our moneys worth.
As we were walking around enjoying our gelato, and slightly shivering, for it’s always cooler down there, we enjoyed the sights. There was a busker playing some sort of instrument that looked like a upside down hubcap, but sounded more like a piano. The sun was gently setting in the clouds, and casting a unusual glow on everything, and the water was calm.
And then we saw the one legged seagulls. At least that’s what I told my friend they were. As I pointed out the “extremely rare, and unusual” [LOL], one legged seagull standing on the rocks, I noticed another one nearby on the train tracks. I pointed that one out to her also. “Oh poor things I said….poor, poor babies, look they have to hang out together so they have two legs to hold them up.”
Just kidding, the seagulls were not one legged, they were merely standing on one leg. That’s what they do occasionally. But it was too good to pass up. Besides, why do seagulls only raise the one leg? Because if they raise the other they will fall down. Ha ha.
We had a great evening, and we didn’t even get a parking ticket. That’s a feat for White Rock, and their over zealous parking lot attendants.
None of the seagulls were one legged, they were just standing like that.
I have a new link on my side bar, it’s a sponsored link called Gardening Tips, it goes to the Readers digest.ca site, it’s pretty interesting if you would like to take a look.
