I visited the coast this weekend for my mom's 75th birthday
If she knew I was writing her age anywhere she'd be upset!
We spent the day in Vancouver,
taking the Skytrain to Canada Place
walking along the new portion of the seawall
that now connects Canada Place to Stanley Park
Probably walked 15 km that day.
But this post is about this seagull
We watched him pluck a starfish from the barnacles
Fly with it to a dock
and proceed to eat it.
I expected him (or her) to tear it apart first
He lifted his head and with some effort
swallowed it whole.
It was fascinating to watch it literally make it's way down his gullet
Gave me the weebeegeebies to think of those arms and tentacles moving around inside.
