The Pelicans of Kianinny Bay

I visited Kianinny Bay at Tathra on the far south coast of NSW. This sheltered, picturesque little bay is a favourite spot for fishermen to launch their boats.

While there with my granddaughter, three pelicans took an interest in us. They seemed to like our company. So I got a chance to take some photos highlighting their reflections in the water and the different colours of the bay.

Hidden from the the open waters behind small rocky islands, Kianinny Bay always reminds me of what I imagine the typical smugglers’ cove would look like. There’s even a secret cave there.
