A juvenile gull on the seawall at North Hampton Beach and a big chunk of bread roll. Someone came by with lots of bread on Saturday morning right after we finished our monthly beach cleanup. I was in my car, about to leave, and rolled down the window to get this shot.
You shouldn’t feed the gulls. But if you do, I might take a picture.
THE SEA-GULL, by Ogden Nash
Hark to the whimper of the sea-gull;
He weeps because he’s not an ea-gull.
Suppose you were, you silly sea-gull.
Could you explain it to your she-gull?
Ogden Nash had a summer home up on the promontory about a quarter of a mile from this spot.
