Dinner and a Show

On a recent girls' day out, Rachel and I were in in Lincoln City where we picked up some burritos and quesadillas at Muchas Gracias then drove down 17th Street to park on the beach.

While we ate, we watched the gulls pick up mussels, fly up in the air, then drop the mussels on the beach to crack open the shells. Once opened, the gull would pick up the mussel and shake it until the meat came free from the shell. There were piles of shells where the gulls had eaten their dinner.

After dinner and the show, we shoved our crumpled burrito wrappers in the trash and we left behind only tire tracks in the hard wet sand.
