A Visit to Uncle Bob’s Pigeons

It was the pigeons that fascinated me. I remember Uncle Bob’s.  I had been there frequently for many years but when I moved north, I seldom passed through Belmont.  Until yesterday!!  On this day, I enjoyed the Pigeon Entertainment.

It was a bit overwhelming to see before me the vast array of cakes and pastries.  Even at 9 am people were eating pies.  Pies for breakfast?  Morning Tea?  Mind you, I am aware of how good the pies were.  It has been a while, and even now as I am back home, I am planning a visit to the store.  A stock of pies for the freezer?

I needed something – my breakfast had been meagre.  And I wanted another coffee.

So I spun into the car park and stood for a while trying to work out what I would order, or if I would order one of the calorie-laden

Do I need to move?  Someone want to park here?

goodies on offer.  I watched as a couple came by – large folk who should have been on a low calorie diet, who ordered huge pastry filled pastries.  I tried to hide my shaking head!!

Coffee and raisin toast was my order.  And I sat at one of the tables near my car and enjoyed both.  But it was the entertainment that fascinated me.

Typically at a bakery, there are always birds – happy to pick up and indulge in any crumbs that fall to the pavement, or, if no one is looking fly to the table top and devour any left overs.

Ah, the serenity.










It was warm.  Typical Queensland weather.  Two pigeons scampered around crumb collecting and then one, found a puddle and fluffing it’s feathers, lowered itself into the little pool.

When the pigeon had finished its bath, it ran around the tables fluttering its wings and feathers.  I couldn’t get a photo of it.  I laughed.  It was as if it was gloating about its cooling off!!

So I had wonderful coffee, raisin bread and entertainment.
