Following in a Gull's footsteps

Yesterday my daughter Elise and I enjoyed a mother/daughter day down in Gloucester and Rockport, MA.



We stopped here, at Niles beach in Gloucester, to walk around and so Elise could be a little silly. More of that to come.

**Note to self: need to take more macro photos like this one

That's my stomping grounds where I learned to swim! And as I got older...."Spin the Bottle"!

I love this image Sharon. I saw the photo shortly after you posted this morning and I thought about it throughout the day. It really makes me smile!

What IS IT about those gull footsteps that make me smile from ear to ear?

Betty said...

Love your footprints in the sand.I think there is a poem about that but they are not sea gulls that leave them. That looks like a very wonderful place to play and get silly.

This is a delightful photo. There is something always mysterious about find and following tracks from those before you. Sea Witch

I'm sorry if anyone received that spam. I've deleted it.

I have to say, even though I took this photo I really like it too! Those little gull prints were to cute not to photograph! Glad you all enjoyed it too : )
