Beginning October 21, this blog, Rain Trueax's Rainy Day Thoughts, will have a co-author-- painter and long-time friend, Diane Widler Wenzel. We have been sharing, encouraging, and discussing life for over 50 years. We don't always agree... I think this will be fun trip for us both. New posts will be on Saturdays and otherwise randomly as something of interest happens.

Seagull Mama

Last week when we were eating lunch at old Newport with our daughter-in-law and four grandchildren, we got what was for us a rare treat. For the first time ever, we saw seagull babies. Someone had nailed old tires to tall pilings out from the docks, with water all around them, likely as a good nesting place. There might be more enjoyable things to watch while you eat seafood, but offhand, I cannot think of any.

What a treat. I think I've only seen a seagull mama and babies once, off the ferry pier on the Olympic Peninsula. Great photo, rain.

Oh...These pictures are just precious Rain....So very very sweet! How wonderful that you were able to see this dear little family and capture them with your camera...! What a brilliant idea that was of whomever--the tire as 'nesting place'! Perfect!
