Some places we've been and some places we're going.

Moore Park – Day 11

We woke with the sunrise again today but were able to relax and enjoy being in a house with all its comforts. The day promised to be warm and it was but the wind still chilled. I had my haircut, we had coffees etc then went for a walk beside the lagoon. The palms are magnificent but there were no signs of wildlife. By contrast down at the Duck Pond there were THOUSANDS of Plumed Whistling Ducks as well as some Ibis, Egrets and Black Ducks. I’ve never seen so many ducks clustered together just socialising… until they decided I was a threat and took off into the water. We also searched for a geocache, I was assured it was too cold for snakes which was just as well because the grass was thick and tall. I didn’t have my GPS so I used the phone. I consider it lucky I found the cache because I don’t understand how to follow a trail using the phone. Later we walked down to the beach.

Tomorrow we’ll be leaving the comforts and companionship we’ve enjoyed in Moore Park and heading towards Yeppoon.

    well you left moore park beach with a little bang… apparently we had an earthquake, felt all along the coast from yeppoon where you should be now to brisbane which happened as you were driving out….I blame it and our cold spell on the arrival of the southerners….
    It was great fun to see you both.

    • Great to know we have such an impact on the East coasters! Thanks for giving us such a nice little break. Alex has regressed since we left.

    So glad you a nice time and saw thousands of ducks, plus Ibis, Egrets etc. And delighted to hear you have had a haircut. Bravo! (Guess you did not have foils!)
