Who says you need to travel to have a holiday?
I’m having a great time here at home, just doing all the things I enjoy. Like swimming at high tide in the river nearby; later, strolling along the promenade. seeing all the friendly faces of people and their canines who are likewise engaged; and watching the river-life go by.
If I’m really lucky, I may even spot a pelican landing. Rare, yes, but just a few days ago, one landed with enviable ease on a pole in the river. How I wished I’d brought along a high-grade zoom lens camera!
With swallows, ducks, magpies, cockatoos and noisy miners around to name but a handful, there’s plenty for bird-fanciers to admire and enjoy.
And, at last, some sunshine in Sydney! What more could I ask for?
