Then we drove down to Atlantic City to visit the boardwalk and stick our toes in the Atlantic, just to say we had done it :o) The first thing I noticed were the many, many LAUGHING GULLS - yes, they really do laugh. There were lots of juveniles being fed by parents - they hang around people like our Western Gulls do back home.

Next to them, the GREAT BLACK-BACKED GULLS looked huge! There were a few HERRING GULLS around as well.
I was amazed to see SANDERLING chasing the waves right in among the crowds of people on the beach.
