From where she stood, Abby could see clear blue sky and boats anchored safely in the harbor.
It was a perfect day to release Petya, the name she gave to the seagull, that she nursed back to health. A month ago while taking a walk along the beach and enjoying the view, Abby found the injured bird shot with a pellet gun.
Freed from its metal cage, Petya hesitated for a moment and looked at Abby as if asking for her permission. But sensing the wind, it finally spread its wings and soared to the heavens to reclaim its birthright.
