I'd like to fly like an eagle



Clear skies over the North Sea in Germany. The seagull is on top of a traditional beach chair, which is also pictured in the post below and is profesionally described here. The history is told here.

  2. I love this shot Mar. Looks like the gull was posing just for you. I looked at your post under this and also love the full view of the traditional beach chair. I like the way they have built in shade.

  6. My German pen pal sent me a photo of her and a friend in a similar chair (back in the 50's). I wonder why the chairs are so brightly pattered inside? It seems that relaxation might be better served if the linings were cool blues and greens.

  8. On German beaches the 'beach baskets' (literal translation) are necessary, they give you a little protection from the wind.

  9. I remember those chairs... That's a great shot of the seagull - but I wish him LOTS of luck soaring like an EAGLE!!! Still... they are pretty in flight too!

  10. that's a cute picture and a very interesting history about the beach chair. Nevertheless I have never seen a single one in the European countries I know (and I guess besides the North I know them all) and in other parts of the world neither. For the Belgian coast they would be ideal, but they don't know them apparently.
