I Fed A Dolphin- That’s All Today

I remember seeing pictures of Monkey Mia as a kid & thinking that’s cool, well today was my turn to visit. I made the 20 or so minute trek so ild be there for the first feed well provided the dolphins were going to play the game today. I stood patiently while all the other rude people pushed forward when they did turn up (what social distancing?) for the first feed & I will admit I was a little disappointed when the couple next to me got picked to feed the dolphins. So I spied a cafe & joined the long line for a coffee & muffin.

This guy tried his hardest to steal my muffin but managed to get the cookie off the neighbours plate.

The dolphins came in a second time, this time I thought ild watch from the jetty prob a better view. Less people around so I thought I’ll go get my iPad from the car finish my book if they come in before I finish my book awesome if not I’ll hit the road. Well third time lucky I got picked to feed Piccolo, her baby Pan was right beside her. In my excitement of feeding her I didn’t think to ask anyone to take a photo but never mind I have the memory and a pretty close photo. So ready for dolphin spam .... too bad here it is

I did try to pick my favs.

Heading back to town my next stop was Francois Perron Park I only went as far as the homestead (need 4wd to go further & the Rav & I know our limits). Still a nice little explore & I had all intentions of jumping in the hot tub easing all those tired sore muscles but it’s like 30 out & boiling point in. I stuck a foot in decided been boiled alive was not an option so nothing else went it.

Lucky for me Little Lagoon isn’t far away so a quick dip there cooled me off before heading back into town for a quick dip at the beach & a picnic lunch (pretty sure I never want to see another rocket & cheese roll again or pasta for that matter).

There’s a little viewing platform where you can see the water flow through the mangroves into the lagoon. There’s a cow something ray in this pic.

Headed out of town the other way out to Ocean Park Aquarium, it’s not a big place but you get to see these cool little critters plus a few sharks. My favourites were these Longhorn Cowfish, honestly they looked like little bulls, they had that bull attitude so cute & funny (I’ve got a video but it won’t load so Google them)
