10-17 Feb 2015. Mossy Point, on Canberra’s coast, lies between the Tomaga River to the north and Candlagen Creek to the south. It’s mainly residential and is one of many small villages in the area. On the other side of Candlagen Creek is Broulee, one of the best beaches on the coast for surfing and boogie boarding.

Walking around the headland at Mossy Point,

we see an unexpected cross-country running race,

and a gathering of seagulls down where the fishermen come in.

A visit to the Mossy Point Muffin Shop. Good muffins. Good coffee. But best of all: the lorikeets!

Mogo Zoo, a little inland from the coast. A small privately owned zoo that has had some success in breeding endangered species. We go to photograph of course. It’s a kind of mini safari: deer, giraffe, lemurs, gibbons, gorillas, zebra, tigers, lions and meerkats.

The meerkats are endlessly entertaining. Here they are all in a row looking up. What’s up there? What is that? It’s a plane flying overhead. They are captivated until the noise has gone.
