Re: Just sitting on the back of the boat
annoying and tenacious (if you ever tried to eat food on the beach of boardwalk, you will know) as gulls are.. they are a pretty bird.
I miss the mallards. Up until the Fox returned to Ocean City, the Mallards would form huge flocks. Every morning they would make the rounds of the Marina and then start hitting up the homes on land nearby looking for handouts.
Most of them were so tame you could hand feed them. I can't tell you how many ducklings I took home as a kid and raised before putting them back to continue on with the flock
In the end all that matters is how fully you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things that did not belong to you -buddha
