gift from the gulls

gift from a gull

Gulls often drop clams onto the stones in the Kala Point lagoon’s inlet, breaking them open so the birds can feed. This one was dropped too close to the water line of the incoming tide and the gull abandoned it. Not so the crabs, who quickly discovered the god’s gift.

For those of you outside the Puget Sound area, WA-20 is a highway that is, in part, a ferry route (Pete Townsend/Keystone). We can see the ferry from the Kala Point beach as it arrives and departs Pete Townsend.
