I met old Ted down on the river at North Haven on the mid north east coast of Australia. I had actually just finished filming some Australian Cockatoos in a nest. What a treat that was!
Anyway, I was walking back to my rusty old Ford car when I saw this old man unpacking some fishing gear, and I just had to say hello. He looked like such an interesting chap, and luckily enough he was okay about me filming him.
The more I spoke with Ted, the more stories he shared about the local rivers and his travels over the years. He was actually one of the very first surfers in Australia and loved the waves too!
Old Ted however told me that this trip would probably be his last to the Camden Haven river. I knew I would never see him again, but it was an experience I will surely never forget.
