All Seasons: Summer

ALL SEASONS is about any experience you may have during the season -the beautiful, the fun,weather, nature, and anything else.

I love the summer, I don’t mind the heat, I prefer it over the cold of winter and even the chill of fall. I love the long days, when the sun is up early, the birds singing along with its rising. Days spent at the beach, visiting a park, walking with my camera capturing the beauty around me.

 

Day of the Seagulls

Going to the beach on a weekday is so different from going on the weekend. We arrived to find the beach mostly empty and as people did come, everyone had enough room to take a space without intruding on anyone else. I don’t know if it was the lack of people, but the beach was filled with seagulls all day, everywhere you looked. I have gotten used to them strolling by where I am sitting, but yesterday they lounged around right next us, sleeping and watching the surf. One bird kept swooping into the surf, who I later identified as a Common Tern. There were Muscle Shells galore that had washed in with the surf, so it was open Buffet all day. Here are some of the seagull sights I saw.
