One Sunny Saturday: A Beady Eye


One of the nicest things about the chateau, apart from the views, is that there's plenty of variety: monuments and antiquities to look at, a children's playground, trees to lie under, an attractive waterfall and cafes selling ice cream and cold drinks (but 3 euros an ice..come on guys that's ridiculous!).
I spotted this herring gull taking advantage of the waterfall to have a nice cool drink. Funny but somehow I've never thought of of gulls drinking...

3 Euros an ice cream?! They are fairly pretty in their snow white suit. But with his beady eyes, he has a stern look. Maybe he is thirsty.

He looks annoyed, probably at the 3 euro price - the waterfall is a better option. Good close up!

he looks like he's seen a thing or two, in his travels . . .

But is such delicious ice cream.
Gulls the world over have that curious annoyed look, well they do when they see me with the camera.

I guess he wasn't drinking chocolate milk!
