This lone Seagull seemed to be watching Seattle from across the bay on Alki Point, West Seattle.
This part of Seattle has always held special meaning to me. My Dad lived here and when he was a small child, his parents would bring him along with his two sisters to pitch a tent and camp on the beach. That was nearly a century ago when families would enjoy these outings. Now these beaches are only for visiting during the day and the boulevard is lined with Seafood restaurants, houses and condos. The parks are filled with people every day and this sight of metropolitan Seattle has changed much over the years. But I would like to think this Seagull might be a direct descendant from those gulls that would visit my father and his family during those days long ago.
