Apollo bay. Another day.

On the road again...
A surfers home.
We reach small towns, situated along the coastline. This is Apollo bay. A town visited by masses of tourists. But it was pleasant to have some coffee and smoothies, roll our eyes at the sight of the prices of so desired hoodies and surf boards.

They never seize to closely follow the movements of your hands. And they also miraculously appear out of nowhere as soon as you open any kind of small bag. Let it be a plastic bag with home made sandwiches or just a bag of chips. 

A tourist among tourists.
The main side walk. We had our coffee and smoothies here. Or more accurate, we bought it here and drank it on our way through the town. We had little time-Melbourne awaits.

One sip, just for the photo shoot. 

The White-faced Heron, Egretta novaehollandiae.
The same one, but in some kind of display.It can be it just got some goose bumps.
Now it's me sneaking up on some birds. See above below what I've managed to capture with my old, non professional camera.
The Masked Lapwing (Vanellus miles). Many Australian birds have skin things hanging on their faces. What can these gorgeous  yellow wattles can be useful for?
They are also equipped with a thorny spur that projects from the wrist on each wing. It was believed it can inject venom...
The Galah , Eolophus roseicapilla, also known as the Rose-breasted Cockatoo, Galah Cockatoo, Roseate Cockatoo or Pink and Grey, is one of the most common and widespread cockatoos, and it can be found in open country in almost all parts of mainland Australia.
