Warm weather means the chip van is back at Cherry Beach. It always reminds me of Roddy Doyle's book, The Van. Well, the gulls get very excited, no wonder, so I sat a while and enjoyed the light on them, which was quite beautiful.
In my family, a seagull is always referred to as "Old Pecky." This comes from an incident where I was sunbathing on a beach on Lake Huron years ago, only to be woken by a sharp peck on my calf. Some gull thought I was carrion I suppose. Hey! I was most offended and teased mercilessly when I reported the story. Ow. Old Pecky indeed. I'd like to know where the flag is for that pole.
