|sketches of boats (and more) at Beavertail State Park overlooking Narragansett Bay in Rhode Island|
|The spelling is incorrrect: It should be "Narragansett"|
I love drawing animals but always feel inept. I think I made a reasonable sketch of this fellow. His eyes were better than mine and soon, he'd plucked a crab from the waves and seaweed. The crab wasn't too happy about it and made several successful escapes. The gull kept at it and soon landed him. How'd you like to eat things that were in the habit of pinching your face?!
Speaking of birds and water, I can't end this post without following up on the ducklings I drew a few weeks ago near my house.

All twelve are still safe and growing. I resisted giving them names but I was reminded of one of my favorite children's books.
Have a wonderful summer.
