mothers day 2010

We visited Nudgee beach for the wetlands migratory bird festival today...

What a stunning wetland.

This beautiful sacred kingfisher kept us company as we wandered through the dappled shade of the muddy mangroves.

Happy mothers day to mothers everywhere. My wish is: all creatures be safe and young ones be safe, our environment secure and life giving for many years.

I see inaction in politics and business towards preserving and protecting the world we live in, the land we walk on and the air we breathe and I worry, I really despair sometimes for the future... but today was about breathing in pure air, meeting people who do care and do notice their environment and the creatures around them and it was wonderful and restoring...may there be many more festivals like this!
