Beachcomber – Port Jackson Shark Egg Case
Today, went for a nice walk along Bungan Beach, here in Sydney, Australia. It’s been awful weather today, so much rain, but thankfully, around lunchtime it eased off.
Upon walking along the beach, I came across this Port Jackson Shark egg case. They are spiral shaped so that the mother shark can secure the egg within rock crevices.
This case was about 15cms long and 7cms wide.
Somewhere to Run to
Today, my other half finally arrived back in Sydney. Fudge the dog (that we’re looking after) was pleased to see him, almost as much as me.
We ended up taking Fudge to Bayview Park, here in Sydney, which is where this photo was taken this afternoon. Bayview Park is a fantastic spot to take dogs – they are allowed off their leashes and can run about and meet other dogs and play in the water.
By the end of our time there, Fudge was rather wet and because we’ve got a new car, he ended up in a bright green tub next to me, so that he didn’t get the car covered in sand or water.
All in all, it’s been a really nice, relaxing Saturday!
Ah, I will be glad when this week is over. I feel as though I’ve had no time to do anything for me, including taking photographs. I’m afraid, this photo is all I have to offer for today.
My partner was supposed to arrive back tonight, but his flight was cancelled/diverted and instead of landing in Sydney, it landed in Brisbane, so he’s away for yet another night and it now digs in to the long weekend here, which to be honest, I’m a bit fed up about. Oh well, nothing I can do about it. Sorry for all the moaning this week, I just feel exhausted and alone – apart from my 4 legged friend, who by the way, gives the best greetings!!
Today, whilst on my lunch break, I sat in the local park watching people, birds, clouds go by. This Indian Myna bird was hoping that I was going to give it some food. I didn’t have any food and even if I did, I wouldn’t have given it any. These birds here are in Australia are known to steal sausages off of bbq’s. Some people here don’t like them. I have to say, I don’t mind them… their cheekiness intrigues me and makes me smile.
Today, I have to say, I have had no inspiration to take any photographs. I’ve really struggled. I guess, having to get up at 5am every day now, so that I can take Fudge out for a walk and get 2 buses to work and 2 buses back, isn’t really helping me.
I feel exhausted to tell you the truth. Having 2 jobs, which are completely different and with the extra commute and the early mornings is beginning to take its tole on me. I really feel like I need a break.
