Seagulls & Sailboats

 I went cycling this evening around Victoria Park, these gulls were on the lawn near the canons.

 One sailboat was heading out.

There was a power boat coming in, not sure what it was towing, sort of looks like a rubber dingy.
I spend most of the day doing some maintenance around the house.
It was a hot day, close to 30 with very little breeze.  The forecast was for showers this evening, while cycling I just had one little sprinkling of rain. 15 minutes after I got home it just poured for 15-20 minutes.
