It reached 99° here yesterday!
By one degree, we beat the record high set in 1912.
For comparison’s sake, last year the high was 76°.
On or off the water, everyone was hot to trot.
Seagulls seem to celebrate the heated debate.
Still, at the end of the day, there’s no better place to be.

Uncle Tree made a play to get close, but he didn’t pass Mum’s security check.
The babes hesitated and peeked, but followed Mum thereafter.
Ganders gallantly stood their ground for grazing hungry goslings.
In the meanwhile, Mum taught impromptu getaway maneuvers.
From heron out, I declare — birds must stand still when posing!
Okay, besides this guy, who’s got the gull to oppose me?
That’s what I thought, good gully.
Captured in rapture
Far and in between each reach
One thought caught in mind
