Paddle Boards have become popular out here recently but they definitely perform better on calm water!
There were also a couple of people on kayaks.
There are always numbers of power boats around - plus the occasional sail boat.
There were plenty of birds high in the trees and bush but few of them came within reach of my lens. This one came down into the bush ahead of me and when I saw its fish-shaped tail flicking I knew that it was a Spangle Drongo. There seem to be a lot of them around right now.
I haven't walked any distance along the shoreline for quite some time so was more anxious to walk than to stop and patiently wait for photo ops for birds! In habitat like this you need a lot of patience! This little Brown Honeyeater came close but kept behind the bushes.
Grey Mangrove trees flower around Christmas time but there were quite a lot of mangrove seeds washed up at the tide line. The covering on the seed splits open when it reaches land and the bright green leaves push out and eventually the roots as well.
