Reminiscent of a scene from an Alfred Hitchcock movie

seagulls 005Late afternoon as I walk along the beach front I see, what seemed like to my fertile imagination, these tourists being terrorized by the seagulls. Reminding me of that Alfred Hitchcock horror movie “The birds”.

Meanwhile, with a cool wind blowing from the snow fields down south and the temperatures plummeting to approx. 19C (!), one brave soul was going for a swim. Maybe he was escaping from the birds…seagulls 018


  1. Have you read the book? By Daphne du Maurier. Living here with the crows and magpies, I often think of it. Especially when occasionally one will come right up to my window and tap its beak on the pane as if to say, “I’m watching you…”

  2. You know Alfred Hitchcock?! He lived part time here in Scott’s Valley! A friend of mine still drives his old Ranchero! ‘The Birds’ was filmed up north in Bodega Bay in Marin County. Parts of ‘Vertigo’ were filmed locally, including scenery on Highway 9 between Boulder Creek and Saratoga. I think of him a s local character more than someone who would be known in Australia.
    Do you know what would be scarier than ‘the Birds’? . . . ‘the WALLABIES’!
