This week at Macquarie Island: 16 August 2019
It's the little things.
The small things of Macca
Macca is well known for its big things.
Big hills to hike up and down, big seals with the elephant seal beachmasters, big birds with the wandering albatross and giant petrel populations, and big weather with the storms and winds that lash the island.
Sometimes forgotten amongst all this bigness as the small things of Macca. As a walker that prefers the slow route poking about the place, and frequently stopping to smell the buzzies, I often marvel at the small things.
There are many little treasures and wonders hiding in plain sight.
