This multi-million dollar beachfront home,
with a deck for sipping cocktails while
watching sailboats in the harbor,
has a different life in winter.
Seagulls drop shellfish, mostly scallops, on the deck.
When the shells break the gulls swoop down to
eat the meat.
And fly swiftly away when they get caught.
No sailboats but plenty of activity.
Those black forms are family scallopers,
out with their rakes getting supper.
Some are working extra to fulfill Christmas requests.
The hero returns.
To his fan club, checking the basket.
Woohoo, scallops tonight.
