Ah well, all good things must come to an end. My holiday in Queensland, Australia is over. Winter in Queensland is bright and sunny, not a cloud in the sky, 25C (77F), not like where I live where it's rain every day and 15C (60F). Needless to say it rained on me as I got home.
I must say how impressed I was with the pelicans. They haven't previously taken much of my attention, but I was sitting there enjoying a nice tranquil lunch at the wharf edge table and a Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet flashed by less than an arms length away. Nearly lost my beer. Actually it was a pelican - those things are huge, 'gi-normous' flying things, zooming by at great speed. Very aerobatic for their size. I took a bit of notice of them from then on.
