Beach walk on the way home

Lovely afternoon. I drive along Petone Beach every day and often stop for a wander after work.

Lots of starfish washed up today. And the black backed gulls eating them - gulp, straight down the gullet. Lots of little crabs upended too, but the gulls not going for them.


Black backed gull with large brown 'baby', and a weeny red billed gull, foraging.

At kitchen table now with cup of tea and radio.
Sun blazing in and autumn warm.
Time to put feet up.

  1. Thats a chunky little starfish you've got there - shaaarrrm that it either has to slowly desiccate in the sun or be gobbled by giant gulls. Not much of a life :(
    My favourite starfish is Peach in Finding Nemo. "Morning. It's morning, everyone! Today's the day! The sun is shining, the tank is clean,- the tank is CLEAN?!" xx
