The weather is moody and stormy, there is a storm, coming and in preparation for it, the ocean has become gloomy and the sun hasn’t even dared to make an appearance yet today. But what a show it will be soon when the wind kicks up and the waves put on their show of superiority. Then these gulls will have a front row seat, watching from their chosen place of shelter until it all blows over.
