    Had lunch today at the Riverfront Kiosk, a delightful & unpretensious eatery right on the river (estuary) here we live. The tide was out exposing all the sand banks which are enjoyed by locals & tourists alike. Sand yabbies useful as fishing bait can be harvested with a yabby pump at low tide. 


    Took my new Fujifilm Finepix S9400W camera with me "just in case". It was a beautiful autumn day, just like summer, & people were making the most of the riverside.

    White Australian ibises or, as they are commonly known, sacred ibises having a feed of buried crabs, worms or yabbies on the sandflats. They are opportunistic feeders but here they are feeding as nature intended for them.

    The tower to the left is on Razorback Lookout. This is a steeper & bigger hill with a few more houses than it appears here.

    The boat harbour in the distance. The two poles with the curved tops are cold showers provided to wash off sand & salt. from swimmers, waders & fishers.

    A few more images taken from the same spot down near the river but facing east this time, except for this shot.  :D 

    Silver-backed sea gulls.

    Think these trees may be tuckeroos. They are fully mature & have been this size for many years.

    The fence surrounds part of an area of rainforest which is being protected.

    The main section of rainforest has been fenced off completely now with the vaguely-seen dark metal fencing to the left. Used to have a path through it but that has now been closed due to damage done by thoughtless people.

    Children's playground. It was covered by a large shade cloth sail but it was destroyed by idiot vandals.

    :hi: there  Dawn,  :thanks: .  Good to see you.  :smile:  We are having some much needed rain at the moment but in general the weather has been great. The last pic of the children's play area was taken from the same spot as the previous pics using partial zoom. The zoom on my new camera is fantastic.  :cool4:

    Your zoom is indeed fantastic !!, we went to look for a new computer at an outlet here, and your camera was on display so I got a real good close up of it , absolutely stunning Joy ! John says to me when I sought it out , "you don't need a new Cam ? " I told him then about yours so he has seen it too now LOL!

    What a coincidence, Dawn.   :lol3: This camera has so many new filters & functions it's astounding. Not only that they are easy to learn how to use. The manual we printed out is about 2ins thick!! The one that came with it looks small but was written in Japanese.  :lol2: Even so most of the camera's functions are readily understandable without the manual, especially if you have already used a Fuji S series camera.  :cool3:
