A Good Day

You might think it strange to see misty images being used in a post about a good day. Because we live so far from our children and grandchildren, any day spent with them is always a good one. This summer we camped in Barleycove, West Cork, and although we had a lot of grey skies, the sun did eventually make an appearance. The seagull pictured in one of the images sat waiting for someone to throw her a treat from their car window. We are pretty sure it was the same bird, next day, that landed a short distance from anyone eating on the beach and stared at them until she was thrown a tasty morsel.

How do I know the bird was female? I don’t, but I’m guessing her mate was minding the chicks while she was out hunting for food. Seagulls mate for life and take turns incubating the eggs and feeding their offspring. Which brings me back to why this was such a good day for me – I got to spend some time in a beautiful place with my lovely family.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Today Was a Good Day.”
