The QE2 in Sydney




The QE2 in Sydney

Originally uploaded by bhojman

The QE2 paid its last visit to Sydney this past weekend. It’s a very beautiful ship. My pastor and his wife were on board having completed a cruise from New York. They had a wonderful time and met up with some lovely people. They were most encouraged to meet up with other Christians on board. The chaplain and his wife were even able to come to our church yesterday.

Gang-gang Cockatoos eating hawthorn berries

I was camped at my property in Majors Creek last week and had a fun time watching the gang-gang cockatoos eating the hawthorn berries. The trees were full of them, all cracking open the berries and eating the centre. They did this all day! I was ignored as I walked around taking photos of them. I’ve been told that as the berries ferment the gang-gangs get tipsy. I suspect they were beginning to experience that as I watched them. The morning I left they were screeching and it reminded me of someone with a hangover….
The one in the photo here is female. The male has a red head with a red tuft. They are really quite delightful!
