Waterfront Dining


Monday evening I was on the phone with my friend Bev, when I realized it was time for the sunset. Since my cordless phone wouldn’t transmit that far, I told her I’d have to call her back. (Can’t miss a sunset around here.)

My buddy, Groom Swan, doesn’t like to miss a sunset either.

He also doesn’t like to miss a chance to eat, so, of course, I had some bread with me. And that meant we had seagulls for company. I hadn’t brought THAT much bread, so Groom Swan had to be on his game to eat as quickly as I tossed it to him.

Whew! This was a close one.

It certainly doesn’t take long for word of free food to get around in the seagull world.

Groom Swan and I had good team work, so the gulls had to look elsewhere for food.  Finally the last one flew off into the sunset,

leaving Groom Swan to enjoy the sunset – and his dinner – in peace.

    • You’re probably right. I haven’t mastered videos yet, but would love to share the calm and quiet of the sunsets – unless of course, the seagulls are there!

  7. Another great sunset! And I’m glad Groom was able to grab a bite; those seagulls tend to take over when they show up ..

  12. I’m beginning to realize you can’t NOT take a beautiful sunset/sunrise shots…Groom Swan makes it even more tranquil.
    Sorry, double negatives…bad habit 🙂

  13. What a wonderful series of photos, which I so enjoyed! Thanks.

  14. Beautiful pix, as always. The swan adds a nice touch to the photos. My husband took birdseed out while I was away this week, and one morning he had a female mallard following him around. He loved having the interaction with her.
