The Story of Luigi the Seagull

Once upon a time there was a little seagull named Luigi. He lived far from his homeland of Italia on a quiet beach near San Diego.


He so missed his old life in Italy, and would give anything to go back. Here is Luigi dreaming of his home across the huge continent and an even bigger sea.


Sadly, he went for his morning swim.


He felt refreshed, and began his walk on the beach.


He had a bath...and an idea!


Soon, he met some of his American friends.


None of them wanted to play cards or go for a doppio. He went over to his buddy, Herb by the castello. " Look at these lousy monuments", he said. "Herb, want to fly with me to Little Italy? "


The two seagulls visited Little Italy, and sipped the remains of a capuccino and some cannoli crumbs. "Molto buono!"



Luigi was happy for the rest of the day. Domani, they will visit a local pizza place, and maybe some GELATO!

Palma-That was so sweet. Such an imagination you have.(And I mean that in a good way!)

Love your creative entry-you should add writing children's books to your many other talents, Palma.


Thanks, Cindy

Brad felt my forehead this morning when he saw the post. But I don't think you can tell sanity that way. I just took so many seagull photos...

Sheena :

Palma you could write GREAT books for children - tying your family therapy in with that imagination!

Of course we all know that it wasn't Luigi wishing he could fly off to italia - it was the photographer!

Soon, Palma, soon.

You think? LOL

Barb Cabot:

We want the further adventures of Luigi! (I love that name). This is too too sweet for words. Thank you.
