Another memory....

As I've already told you.....one of our favorite things to do and places to go was to the Rockport harbor. There was a cement wall there and we could park along it and watch the fishermen and the far distant ships and even saw my first dolphin there.
And of course the GULLS!!
Loved feeding those birds. In this pic Don had just threw out a whole piece of bread and they were all after it. (click the pic to enlarge) See the closest bird to his knee? That's the first one to grab it. And then the fight ensued!! Talk about screeching and screaming. :)

When we first started feeding them we would just throw pieces of the bread out at them and they would dive for it. But finally, after several tries....I was able to hold the bread in my fingers and they would swoop in and grab it from me. Kinda scary at first!!



And then there's these two clowns.... I guess they wanted an up-close-and-personal look at what was going on inside. heehee They stayed there until we were ready to leave. The one on the right was really lazy tho. I would throw pieces toward him....and if the bread didn't land right by him so he could just reach out and get it....he didn't bother.
He sure didn't exert himself.
On our way home this foggy day we drove by this Great Blue Heron just hunkered down by the water. The fog was so thick that day and I missed getting a pic of the cluster of ducks that we saw. Looked like they were in the sky (we couldn't make out the water) :)
I'll post more later. Bye for now.
