Size still matters, but it’s all about the size of the heart:
Back on my local Long Beach, NY: I followed up on my previous post, “Size Matters”:https://leebythesea.me/2014/05/24/size-matters/
I returned to the scene of the American Oystercatchers who would not let harm come to their loved ones. The chicks seemed to be growing rapidly. I spotted the group taking a stroll down by the surf with Mom pointing out items on the surf menu and giving instructions.
First, for an appetizer, if it moves, eat it:
Then, she urges them to taste a little something…
…from the salad bar:
Then, the sea food platter:
But then, as if from nowhere, came the threat.
But Dad, the protector, armed with talons, agility, but most importantly, heart, an asset so formidable that neither size, nor strength, deters it, launches for the dog fight.
To protect family, he will take no prisoners:
Talons tear and feathers fly in this fierce fight.
But it was clear the fearless defender neutralized the threat.
Finally, this beach’s greatest generation prevails and the intruder retreats.
Then serenity, once again, for the family to eat…
…amidst the peace, by the jetty, in the sun.
Peace lovers of the world: Enjoy your beaches, your backyards, your families, your friends. Courageous protectors left their own families so that you can enjoy yours… in freedom and in peace.
