Riding with seagulls

IMGP3539

I’m riding with seagulls
down here on the beach
as they fly alongside me
just out of reach
It’s like swimming with dolphins
just as wonderful and
the only change is that
I’m still on the land

I’m riding into the wind
and I’m laughing as they
swoop all around me
on this fine August day
It’s a marvellous feeling
and one you should try
Just cycling along with
the gulls as they fly

Cycling to work yesterday morning, I passed a stretch of open beach. As I did so, several seagulls took to the wing and flew alongside me into the wind and mere feet above the shingle. They stayed for a hundred metres or so and then flew out to sea; just enough time to laugh aloud and revel in a very special moment. I wish I’d had a head-cam to capture it, but the memory will stay, as will these words.
