Nature is above, below and all around us. The commercial Striped Bass season started on Tuesday and so far the landings have been slow from what I've seen. Also dock workers at the Gloucester Seafood Display Auction rescued a gull chick that fell from the Americold building. While that was going on I spotted an unusual gull that had a yellow spot on the top of his head! Perhaps he was "hit" by another gull or perhaps a natural discoloring of it's feathers....I just don't know. And if that's not enough, I noticed a gull who noticed it's reflection on a nearby fishing boat wheelhouse window. For the past two days the gull would return and walk back and forth looking and pecking at it's reflection!

The call of the wild!
It's not "soda" and not "pop" or even "soda pop" it's "tonic"!
It's a "rotary" not a "roundabout"!
"Going up the line" is a term used when leaving the island!
A "jigga"is a homemade powerless go-cart!
It's not "Break Time or Coffee Break" it's "Mug-up"!
It's not a "water fountain" it's a "Bubbla"!
