this isn't the valley i'm used to

i grew up on the St. Lawrence Seaway so i've been around water all my life. i used to see black squirrels in the park in the Ottawa Valley all the time and now that i've moved from there i NEVER see a black squirrel. i see red and grey squirrels everywhere but whatever happened to black squirrels anyway?
that's not the reason i'm writing today. i'm writing about seagulls. they're rats with wings, they're scavengers that can be pretty annoying. they're pretty much pigeons that hang out by the water instead of tall buildings in downtown Winnipeg. i've seen more than my share of seagulls in my time.

i think i just saw Jonathan Livingston Seagull.

this was the grandfather of all seagulls. they grow they BIG out here on the Pacific. this bird was the size of a Swan instead of the normal pigeon like size that i'm acquainted with.

that's all i have to say.

oh wait, i also saw 2 bald eagles and 4 seals. pretty cool eh?
