Footprints in the Sand

Title: “Footprints in the Sand”

Description: As I walk along the sands of Long Beach Island in NJ, I came across a peculiar trail of markings. It took me a while to figure out what the markings were, but I eventually realized they were from a seagull! I got a fellow friend of mine with flat feet to walk alongside the seagull’s webbed footprints. If you look hard enough, you can appreciate my friend’s decreased foot arch height. As for the seagull…it’s hard to say, but the seagull may have an in-toeing gait!
