Seagulls in the sunset

Today on my blog I am sharing just a few little seagull images from my trip a couple of weeks ago to Coral Bay, along with some quotes from Richard Bach's book, Johnathon Livingston Seagull, with images by Russell Munson, first published in 1972.

"It's a reminder, this little fable, that the path for us to follow is already written within, that's it's for each of us to find out own loves, and live them brightly for ourselves."
You can read more on the official blog here -  Richard Bach, Jonathon Livingston Seagull

“Don’t believe what your eyes are telling you. All they show is limitation. Look with your understanding. Find out what you already know and you will see the way to fly.” 

And of course remember that this can happen at any time of life if you are open and believe in yourself.

"You have the freedom to be yourself, your true self, here and now, and nothing can stand in your way."

 "Overcome space, and all we have left is here. Overcome time, and all we have left is now."

There always seems to be seagulls along the beach at Coral Bay, but in the evenings as the sun slowly starts to melt into the Indian Ocean the flock gathers together.

You can try if you wish, to make them fly, but they only flap a few metres before returning to the sand.

 Perhaps they too are enjoying the magnificent sunset.

I hope you search for and follow your own true path.  It is already there within in if you open your mind and heart to it. I think we owe it to ourselves, and to those we love. And if they truly love you they will support you as you follow your dreams. At any time of life. Just believe and do.

And a clip, Skybird, from Neil Diamond's 1973 album - Jonathon Livingston Seagull.

  1. Beautiful words and photos Jill. I have some fantastic photos of seagulls that I captured at Red Bluff Beach north of Carnarvon. They do make a plain photo look a little more interesting. However beach sunsets are always interesting!

  2. Your photos give such a sense of freedom and beauty. If I had a room big enough I'd like all these blown up and put around the walls! Love the quotes - this one particularly resonated with me today ... Don’t believe what your eyes are telling you. All they show is limitation. Look with your understanding. Find out what you already know and you will see the way to fly.”

    1. The quotes really resonated for me too Jo.

  3. Lovely flight shots of the birds against wonderul coloured skies. Love the Neil Diamond track.

  4. Really amazing shots. I love the golden glow sprinkled in each of them. Thank you for linking in with "Through My Lens"
