The most passive, and obviously injured, seagull was on campus for the past couple of days. It wasn’t possible to tell exactly what was wrong with him (or her) but, it seemed clear that it couldn’t fly. Thatcher and Finn fed him a can of tuna fish, which he happily gulped down, and then a co-worker took him to a veterinary clinic. He was so gentle. Fingers crossed for the poor little guy (or gal).

Recently I’ve been spending time researching the history Gloucester, and have come across many photos of the fish drying yards that once covered the Gloucester Waterfront before the days of the modern refrigeration like this one circa 1906. There was always something about these photos that I found disturbing, and never figured out why until recently. Looking at the photos, it occurred to me that there is one ubiquitous element of Gloucester Harbor that is hauntingly absent… The gulls. Where are they? What is keeping them from the feast waiting right there on the wharf? If anybody knows the answer, please share.

7 Seas Whale Watch
As many as 15 species of whales populate the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary. The mission of 7 Seas Whale Watch is to bring passengers within eyeshot of these enormous sea creatures as they thrash about, breaking the water’s surface with their enormous heft and diving gracefully back below.”

The shark finally did manage to get away but not after the seagull messed around with it for about 20 minutes.
Herb Wennerberg reminds everyone that the Open Door Empty Bowl Dinner is Thursday, May 8th, from 4 to 8pm at Cruiseport.
Herb submits this funny video from last year’s event, with footage of uninvited guest Homie, who not only eats someone else’s soup, he makes a terrible mess, and tries to take the pretty bowl with him! My goodness Homie, such bad manners!
