I stayed in San Clemente while visiting the Surfside Quilt Guild and my hotel was just a mile from the beach. The one mile walk down to the beach was very nice, the uphill mile back to the hotel was good exercise :-).
I walked to pier for the last time Wednesday morning and took photos of seagulls because I think they are cute.
They look like birds with an interesting attitude… sort of nonchalant and friendly. And these guys were posing for me so I got closer…
Close enough to notice that their tails are dotted!
Who knew! And once you notice the dots, don’t don’t you think that they pull the black and white color scheme of the feathers together? Nature is just jam-packed with little quirky details.
