Riding the Rails

Seagulls
Riding the Rails

I’m always amazed when I see gulls perched on just about anything. At first glance those webbed feet would seem to slide off any smooth surface; so they must have suction cups attached to the underneath (maybe when I have time I’ll google it).  However this pair reminded me of waiting patiently to board the next passing train for a free ride to the next town – an old hobo tradition.  I do have some personal experience of ‘riding the rails’; however, that’s a story for another time.
