The Gulls of Galveston

As a young man, I lived on the beach in Corpus Christi, Texas and the Gulls of Padre Island were a constant subject of fascination for me. The excitement and thrill of feeding them hasn't left me in all these years.


  1. they look like laughing gulls.
    In Atlantic City, if you are eating pizza on the boardwalk the swoop down and steal right out of your hands, all the while making that loud laughing sound... which makes you start laughing too; because you just got outsmarted by a bird.

  2. I'd love a little ocean breeze right now, even if it came with pizza stealing gulls. It is HOT here in Vegas.

    Bob, I went to lunch yesterday with a friend of mine who was born and raised in Enid, OK. I asked her if she'd been to the Gilcrease Museum and she raved for close to an hour about how wonderful it is.

    Between your link and her enthusiasm, I now want to go -- but it's a really long day trip ....
