We’re back Down Under this week talking breakfast.
Macca reminisces his brekkie with Lorikeets on the East Coast beach. While I talk breakfast with Cockatoos on our friends balcony in Sydney.
You’ve seen this cute fellas before when I was talking about our wildlife encounters during our trip down the East Coast. We met them on a lovely sunny morning enjoying our brekkie at our friend’s place on the North Shore in Sydney.
Like Macca’s Lorikeets, our Cockatoos turned up out of nowhere. We could hear them first, hiding in the trees, then the first and the bravest of them all landed on the bannister tilting his head to the side looking at us and investigating what we were eating.
Soon all his friends joined in and we offered them some sunflower seeds. Firstly sprinkled over the bannister, then out of a bowl, and finally out of our hand.
And yeah, there is something special about interacting with nature in such a close way. We’ve had breakfasts with giant lizards by the beach, met lorikeets in the Tablelands, found a possum behind a coffee machine and had kangaroos procreating at 2am in the morning outside our little camper.
It was awesome and I truly think that travelling up or down the East Coast gives you some of the best chances of experiencing it on your travels.
