Setting sail

Setting sail, Oostende, Belgium

Hitchcock’s Birds are back. Not as threatening as in Birds on the brain, but still they’re back.

I read in the newspaper this morning that, at the Flemish coast, gulls are attacking people on the street. They pick people’s heads and try to steal their food.
A ‘not so clever’ person proposed to build an artificial island in front of the coast and getting rid of the aggressive gulls by deporting them to this island. He probably forgot that gulls can fly …

Oh, and regarding the little sailboat in the photo. I wonder if it is Nat Hocken and his family who are setting sail to England, in an attempt to escape the terror at the Flemish coast.

Philip.
