One never tires of the coastal drive between Emu Park and Yeppoon. The sea is sparkling and we can see the sandy beaches on Great Keppel Island. Even though it is Sunday, Emu Park is busy and coffee shop patrons are spilling out onto the street chasing the sun.
Writing this I am being watched by a curlew and two lizards. In fact, having most of the day to ourselves we sit in the sun and I spend the afternoon sketching a curlew in a variety of poses. They don’t move much during the day and he seems to hold one position for at least a half hour before lazily stretching a wing or a leg. Unlike pelicans who never stop wriggling whilst appearing to be doing nothing. Birdwatching 101!
