Lots of pelicans! And a heron…

A few months ago we went to The Entrance, on the Central Coast. Had a lovely breakfast there and after checking out the falls at Somersby. At 3 pm every day, the local pelicans have their feeding time. So what does one do when one has a camera?

Somersby Falls

We are back! We took aย drive to the Central Coast this past Sunday and discovered some beautiful spots. This week, I present you with Somersby Falls. Like my husband, I left my tripod at home and relied on my fairly steady hands and the odd branch or railing…
