Seagulls Surfers, and Sighs

I had forgotten about these photos taken right after Hurricane Earl.  We had never seen so many seagulls at once. Hundreds of them lined the beach.


It was like they were waiting to listen to a speaker or something.


To which my DB happily obliged by saying.
"We are so glad you could all be here today
I'm sure you are all wondering why this meeting was called..."


This youngster walked a little closer to hear it all.


Surfer's were enjoying some decent waves.



This one had some dance like movements going on.


Right up to the moment before he lost his balance.


These seagulls were literally in an "arrow" formation pointing to the water's edge.
.
I asked my DB to take my photo for my blog.
In a new dress I'm still not sure about. It's a bit short.
So here goes.

Yes, some of us should only wear pants!

"Honey, they won't be able to see you if you keep your sunglasses on."


Sigh, Sigh.

Those seagulls look absolutely tuckered out. Poor things. Laughed at the announcement - just perfect. My dad has a saying "if you've got the pins, wear the skirt" and so I say to you "wear the skirt". Have a great week.

I have to say, forget about seagulls - you have one amazing pair of legs and this skirt looks gorgeous on you. :-)
I love watching the ocean in the fall, it makes me dream of so many wonderful things. And I love seagulls - I think they are very smart. Several years ago one of them stole my daughter's lunch box right out of her hands. It was just so funny seeing seagull with a pink lunch box flying away to enjoy chicken sandwich.:-)

Debbie said...

I thought I was the only one who took seagull pics. We get them here in upstate NY and they are the closest thing to the ocean I can get too. I also love their mournful cries and graceful glides through the air.. Took quite a few pics this weekend of my feathered friends! thanks for sharing great pics.. love the last one especially...

Sanity Fair said...

a) oratory to the seagulls is hilarious,
b) you look great in that dress! And I especially like the hair in your face look - not the goal I know, but it's casual and pretty. Own it!
You're making me wish I was going to see the beach soon... :(

Hey Rita! LUV the new dress on you! If I had great legs like you do, I'd wear short ones for sure! lol! You look adorable standing there, girl! Love your photos of the beach, too. I never get tired of seeing water, sand, and seagulls...

InMyOwnStyle said...

Your legs look great and some of us - YOU - should always show your legs - love the skirt and it is not too short. I also love to see your photos of the ocean - I can look at them all day - so calming and refreshing. Thanks for providing them for us ocean loving, but ocean-less people.
My best - Diane
