It was a lovely moment to watch the pelican feeding moments and it was fun to walk on the lagoon plus the fish and chips in the Charins seafood was superb.

I actually wish you would stop feeding these Pelicans as this used to be a nice place to have a swim. Now it's full off bird poo and feathers, and Pelicans swimming pond. Could you maybe move this feeding somewhere else?

Nothing like seeing the Pelicans gliding in the air waiting to line up for their daily feed. Living locally we always take visitors over to watch the daily procession of these fascinating birds.
