Close Encounters on a Kayak – Sun-bathing Eastern Water Dragon, Sydney Harbour
Today, I made a picnic and we went on a mini adventure on Sydney Harbour in our double ocean kayak.
Whilst paddling around, we came across not 1 but 3 Eastern Water Dragons – all of which were sun bathing by the water’s edge, 2 were on rocks and this one was lying rather comfortably in the sun on a tree branch that had fallen. He/she looked quite content. It was so wonderful to see them in their natural habitat and for us to get as close as we did in our kayak without disturbing them.
