Taylor Street

Couple more pictures from yesterday's trip to The Bays. Taylor Street was swarming with mozzies (skeeters) but untouched by the fires. The bus shelters in The Bays have murals of local wildlife and so on in them. This one is in Taylor Street.

(Big version) The white bird is a sulphur-crested cockatoo. There's a couple of plump owls of some sort, a rainbow lorikeet hanging upside down to feed and a nervous-looking vole or something.

(Big version) The other end of the same bus stop. A shag drying its wings in the sun and two of the Coast's ubiquitous pelicans.

Do they ever get hit with graffiti Spike ?
Here most of the walls etc that have murals seem to be left alone.

There was a bit of scribble on one of the kids' pictures but it looked like a kid or the kid had just added a couple of horse-sized dogs and a miniature human.

It's not a spot well populated by teenagers. Mostly it's retirees and yuppies with small kids. And a lot of dogs. One peed on me.
