Living in a Marsupial World

Busy busy days here in Sunshine Beach these past few weeks. The four of us have been painstakingly focused on finding a used vehicle to buy for our upcoming trip round Oz. While we did consider creating an awesome used car buying montage, on the whole the process hasn't made for very exciting blog posts.

However, the Sunshine Beach/Noosa area is incredibly beautiful, and in between car shopping we've taken many walks to the beaches and done a few treks through the National Park (which is spread out throughout the area). Wild Turkeys (Bush Turkeys) are everywhere. They're protected here but are largely hated by local residents because they've become so comfortable around people that they often wander into homes and through restaurant patios looking for handouts. We've also encountered plenty of kookaburras (yay!) and rainbow lorikeets which are beautiful but deafeningly loud. Funny thing about lorikeets - the berries they eat are fermented, so more often than not these birds are quite drunk when they're flying around and screeching at the top of their lungs.

Hi you two. Spectacular pictures. What a stunning place. Am impressed by Ben's equanimity during a crisis. Am also impressed by Marielle's willingness to sacrifice you for the shot.
