unexpected surprises

Today the little ones and I were on a jetty.
The little ones were feeding the lunch I had prepared for them to the fish that swim beneath.
So they were looking in the right direction (and I was not) when a wee penguin swam by.

a penguin may be seen somewhere out there

I was disappointed to miss the penguin, but glad that it enjoyed something I had prepared earlier.

I bet Mr. Manatee was entirely too jealous.

...well...what Manatee doesn't know won't hurt him I suppose...

I wonder if the penguin was surprised to see several small Tummies, offering him sandwiches (which I hope had tuna in...)
Perhaps, if he was a very small penguin, he had a dad at home, to tell his story to.

Well, yes, there was tuna. Perhaps that is why the penguin enjoyed it and the little ones didn't.
I have only seen Penguins once around here, many years ago. I looked everywhere for this penguin but missed it. I know that there are a couple of small Fairy Penguin colonies nearby, so maybe the tuna sandwich story reached a wider audience than we can imagine.
