    Uranga boardwalk and lizard rescue

    January 14, 2020 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 23 °C

    So we had thought of getting up early to watch the sun rise .... nah, let’s not. However, we did want to go and see the boardwalk at high tide.

    On our way, we came across a blue tongued lizard swimming in the sea. It looked very bloated. While quite buoyant, it swam towards shore, then out to sea, then along a bit then towards shore ... not sure it knows where he was going.

    Obviously Bun wanted to rescue it. I’d like to say that she stripped off, dived in and rescued the poor thing while being applauded by the people watching on, but no. We did secure the help of some young lads, but didn’t actually need them as the lizard swam close to a pontoon that Bun was on. By flapping her arms in the sea, Bun managed to get the lizard close enough to pick up. Bun took it to an area of trees where she hopes it will be very happy. Did we save a life or interfere with nature?
