Sounds silly? What about in my swimsuit, by Cairns ‘sea front’ by a swimming lagoon? Between the showers, coming with the imminent wet season I hit in each new place, I sunbathed in hot sun but it was often too much for a fair skinned English girl!
Lounging in the deeper water, sitting by the wall watching pelicans feding and grooming on the mudflats opened by the tide out, it is still a lovely view!
There is a family of pelicans living here I understand, whilst earlier this week everyone was thrilled to see 15 of them on the tiny beach out front!! They were happy to be close as long as no-one went too near on the sand, then they just took to the water. Amazing to see unusual wildlife so close and regularly!
Today there was also a crane looking for foods at the front as the tide brought new fish in that kept jumping to the surface, offering easy feeds for all birds.
