Before leaving me in the morning, Roger told me I shouldn't skip lunch like I usually do, because I still don't like eating alone in restaurants. I was finally getting my appetite back, and was looking forward to lunch, so on the way back to the hotel, I decided to stop and have lunch along the river at an outdoor food court. On previous walks, we had seen several Ibis birds strutting around and remembered seeing them near a beach when Heather Moe visited us in Adelaide.
I chose a table, put my bagged sandwich down as I opened my bottled water....and then one of the Ibis jumped up on the table and grabbed the bag! Within seconds, he was joined by his friends, and they ended up with my lunch.
Our next stop will be the tiny hamlet of Balranald - our home for the next couple of months. Not sure what to expect, but after the last 7+ years of diverse accommodation, I'm pretty sure it's going to be better than some of the crazy places we've ended up in, and will hope for the best.
As our good friend, Dwayne Majcher is fond of saying, "Aim low and avoid disappointment." He might be on to something.
