We moved to Gig Harbor, Washington last year and absolutely love living here! It's a cozy little harbor town with a quaint downtown area, artists' galleries, wonderful restaurants, a great community spirit and lively festivals throughout the year. It is also one of the most beautiful places in the Pacific Northwest (which is really saying something) and home to various forms of wildlife: seagulls, giant purple and orange sea stars, sea lions and bald eagles.
Luis was strolling along the Jerisich Dock at the Skansie Brother's Park one morning and managed to capture this amazing shot of a seagull right after he caught this starfish (sea star) and before he swallowed it down.
