Saturday Snapshot


Sept. 2009
This seagull stood on the seawall railing that surrounds Vancouver harbor waiting patiently, hopefully, for a donation of food. The trail around the harbor is always busy with walkers, joggers, cyclists and strollers so his chances were pretty good that he'd get something. When I passed by he kindly allowed me to take his picture so I agreed to give him a piece of my muffin. I guess you could say I was a 'gull-ible' tourist? *groan*

Vancouver is in a beautiful location. The hills in the distance always have some kind of misty, cloudy weather that's fascinating to watch. It's definitely worth a visit.

Smart bird. He knew he would win you over and get some muffin.

It's like 2 pictures. The bird and the beautiful background.

It's so funny how animals very quickly learn routines...I've never visited Vancouver and would love to see more of your beautiful scenery :)
