The Lone Seagull

Remember the lone seagull in the previous post
click the photos to enlarge further
Several people mentioned him in the comments
so I went looking for the rest of the photos I had taken  
and what’s surprising is that they all look very similar
I spied him/her as I was walking at the rocky end of a beach one day
There he was having a paddle in the shallows all by himself
Not another gull near him
Or even on that part of the beach as far as I could see
He just stood there as the waves came rolling in
Looking out to sea!
I walked closer and moved about a bit
but he wasn’t in the least bit fazed
Just let the waves roll in and out around his little legs
When this man came down on to the rocks I thought he’d be up and away
but no he continued to stand there in world of his own
The man moved around but not the gull lol
I had to move on – he was still standing there
I did begin to wonder if his feet were stuck in the sand
but when I looked back a short while later
there was no sign of him

  1. We used to do that when we were kids… just stand there and let the waves wash the sand over our feet, until they were no longer visible.I just loved this set of photos – so peaceful. Can just hear those waves lapping :D)
