On our recent trip to the Oregon Coast, we were taking a scenic drive in-between rain showers and pulled into a view point to just sit and watch the majesty of the Pacific Ocean. Rob was able to capture this photograph of a seagull perched on this sign. We thought it was rather funny as seagulls are always trying to get people to feed them old bread and it seemed like he was warning us to not leave any unattended! Unfortunately for him, we had not come prepared this time with any scraps for the birds.
Later, when the rain cleared for a few hours, we were able to get down onto the beach and enjoy seeing more gulls. Even though they are one of the most common birds at the beach, we never get tired of watching them.
When we got too close, they took flight, heading off away from us intruders who had dared to invade their patch of the sand!
