It is the outer reaches of the beach. The place is no longer the beach in the recreational sense. It is the beach in the sense of the land meeting the shore. The water has the unique sparkle of late morning as the sun skips across the ocean.

This is a wonderful place less for humans and more for the birds, wildlife, and marine life. And this is where two creatures meet for brunch. But they are not meeting in the human sense of brunch.

This brunch meeting between these two creatures is a Herring Gull snatching a crab. The gull flies off with his thrashing prize to some local rocks. The bird will drop the crustacean on the rocks to crack its exoskeleton. And with no waiter present, the repast will ensue. This is mealtime at the outer reaches of the beach.
