As I was going through old photos, I saw a pattern in several travel pics of hubs. He has a “thingabout feeding seagulls.

My feature photo is of my parents and hubs at Ellis Island, when we took my folks on an eastern road trip to visit New York City (and other fun and interesting places on the way there and back).

All of the photos in this post were long before I took any photography classes, so I did a fair bit of editing in Snapseed to correct white balance and to get them as clear as possible for here.

This one is on Pier 39 in San Francisco on a trip with my parents a few years earlier.

Here’s another in Washington state from a trucking trip with hubs (several years before San Francisco). This is a photo of a photo in a “trucking memories” scrapbook I made for him.

When I was putting this post together, I asked hubs, “What is it with you and seagulls?” He replied that he’s loved them ever since he was a youngster, watching Red Skelton’s TV comedy sketches about Gertrude and Heathcliff (some of these sketches are available on YouTube).

So, through this post, I’ve learned something new about my groom of almost 39 years.

“As I watched the seagulls, I thought, That’s the road to take; find the absolute rhythm and follow it with absolute trust.”
