The baked landscape around me makes me think of cooler,
happier times when the Prof and I went on short holidays.
Now, without a travelling companion,
these long drives are out of my reach.
The Eyre Peninsula, in the west of our state has plenty of
wonderful beaches and when heading further down the coast,
we stopped for a couple of nights at the caravan park in
Looking back at the township.
We stayed in a charming little cottage right on the beach.
The only blemish to our stay was this young Pacific Gull
with a substantial lure dangling from it's nose.
Humans can piece their noses and hang bricks from them if they
like but wildlife should not be endanger by our detritus.
Unfortunately I had not the means for catching this
youngster to relieve it of it's burden.
Discarded by the sea, something that looks like a
collection of oddly shape eggs
and a lonely cormorants waiting for shoals of fish with little
hope on an outgoing tide.
I feel refreshed just thinking about it.
