Well, it has taken some frustration with human beings to get me to post again. It’s been a while and hopefully I can get back into a better routine.
So you probably don’t know (unless you’re a Facebook friend) that about a year ago, I moved to live on a small island off the Queensland coast, called Bribie Island. It’s connected to the mainland by bridge. It was once a sleepy little spot where alternative life-stylers flocked to. These days it’s a mixture of young families and retirees, and those in between. I’m a member of the in between group.
So….the island has been a buzz of excitement for a couple of weeks, as a lone seal has adopted our waterways. Unusual, because they tend to hang out in colder climates, but the water apparently is cold enough to keep it close by. What has annoyed me (and many others) is the utter lack of common sense of so many who think it’s OK to get near this wild animal, for photos, to feed it, and, probably worst of all, allowing their dogs to get way too close.
Thankfully, some of our local photographers have been out and used their zoom lens to achieve fabulous shots. One, Sharon Holt, had her photos picked up by a couple of newspapers. The Brisbane Times was one that used her photos.
An update from Sea World is that they think that there are now 2 seals. Double cuteness. Let’s hope they both survive being superstars. 🙂
