This is a sweet yet quite funny story. I'm not super familiar with landmarks of Australia but your descriptions made me feel like I was there and even a bit eager to actually be there. You did a nice job of staying on topic while still incorporating a fresh and clever conflict. I'm not sure who I felt sorrier for the football player or the church lady. Somehow I suspect God might have been quite capable of making something wonderful happen to the young magpie during that boat ride. Nice job.
Thanks for this true story. I thought it was well written and found myself wanting to know more...I wanted to know more about each person. That is always a good sign when the reader wants more.

Thank you. God bless~
What a funny twist. I would have liked to be on the boat with Miss Bragg.
Congratulations for ranking 10th in Masters and 12 overall!
