Those Damn Seagulls Stole My Gourmet Sandwich
In truth, I never brought Kobi beef with black truffle mayonnaise sandwiches to the beach but I thought it made for a better caption. However, I have had my bologna and cheese sandwiches ripped right from my hands a couple of times.
These menacing birds are scary especially when they grab food from the kids hands. It's like something out of Hitchcock's movie, The Birds.
When our girls were little, we had them eat their sandwiches under their beach towels to keep the eagle eyed seagulls from seeing them eat their food. It helped but if they let their guard down and ate their sandwiches out in the open, they were taking their chances.
If you've spend any time at the beach, I'm sure you've had similar experiences. You break out a sandwich or a snack and the next thing you know, there are dozens of seagulls circling overhead looking for a chance to make a dive for your food.
It's a little like the gulls in the movie, Finding Nemo, all screaming Mine, mine, mine.
What's Your Experience?

On a unusually warm December day in San Francisco, California, I was enjoying fish and chips. The sea gulls were more like vultures just waiting for a chance. One tried to snatch a fry but instead hit my head knocking my glasses off. I was able to keep them from getting my meal.
