We live in a cabin in a very “fertile” area of the island. Kind of like Times Square before Mayor Giuliani. Either one pair of seagulls is very amorous, or every day several new pairs come to mate before our eyes. And they’re not quiet about it, they are seagulls after all. There’s a lot of squawking. First there’s the hello baby…
Then the male stands on the back of the female
and they co-mingle their tales to do the nasty. No appendages involved. Look it up. This happens right outside our window, several times a day.
Now they’re looking towards the future and getting ready to nest.
Tim cleaned all the windows when we got here but they are making amazing messes with their fly-bys and he has to do it again.
I spent a couple of hours docking today. With a light wind, no spectators, and no other boats to worry about, I do pretty OK.
Today was a high carb day. I baked a loaf of bread and a coffee cake. Yum. We’re staying here for a while since there have been small craft warnings so I am making do with what we have. We still have wine and chocolate, so we should be fine.
Rain and clouds may be gone for a while. These were passing clouds this afternoon. We’ll see what tomorrow brings.
