Seacliff State Beach
Aptos, CA
They open up their beaks and throats
For breakfast off the back of boats.
Some take a dip and dive for brunch,
Some join the passengers for lunch-
Or swoop in low for sneak attacks
On things like peanut butter snacks.
And when they‘re in a hungry mood,
Sea gulls love your finger food!
