The Story Behind This “Seagull Yoga” (in September)
It was almost the end of summer and I had not spent any time melting into the warm sand of the beach.
The air was 78 degrees F and the water 75 ! A light breeze, sunny, few clouds and a PERFECT beach day!
I brought my camera with me not knowing what what I’d be photographing.
When I got to the beach there were maybe 20 other people there stretched within 1/2 mile stretch of beach.
After Labor Day all the “Bennies” (slang for out-of-towners) leave and the locals once again come out to enjoy the shore.
I flopped my towel down near a bunch of seagulls that were hanging out and I headed for the warm ocean water.
It was SO, SO nice! Warm, clear (at least when it was only a few feet deep).
For some silly reason I didn’t wear my bathing suit so I stood there splashing the refreshing salt water on my arms and neck.
The salt water felt very soft.
I headed back up to my tiny towel to just “be” for a while.
Breathing in the ocean air, hearing the waves, feeling the warm sand, enjoying the sun’s rays…… beautiful, perfect, relaxing.
After a bit I opened my eyes and saw that there were still seagulls close by.
I watched them for a bit and then I got out my camera and began taking photos of these beautiful winged creatures.
One thing I love is getting to spend time with the birds, observing them and catching special moments with my camera.
I noticed that the Gulls went through a little cleaning ritual that was often followed by some stretching which often looked like yoga postures!
This is when I got the shot of “Seagull Yoga”.
