Now it is complete. I simply adore kookaburras. I am grateful one decided to visit us today. It felt like a welcome to the neighbourhood.
I may have mentioned once or twice or three times how fond I am of the ubiquitous pelicans here. Especially the slightly ludicrous sight of these large birds pirched so delicately on top of the extremely tall streetlights. I always look forward to approaching the bridge near Maroochydore as I am never disappointed, there is always at least one. I am grateful today that I looked up on the way home, because the sight of a distinctive quirky cute kookaburra instead of a pelican was so delightfully unexpected, and actually quite silly, I snorted with laughter a good kilometre afterwards. I am so very grateful for silly unexpected moments, that are even better than the expected. But damn if I missed the shot. You’ll have to take my word for it.
