About The Resident Stingrays
When locals speak of the name Parrie affectionately over friendly chatter, they are referring to the resident stingray that has been visiting the harbour for many years. He was initially attracted by the morsels returning fishermen would throw out to him. Now he associates the noise of the boat’s engine with their return and has become something of a pet to the locals. Parrie has grown so accustomed to the friendly nature of the townsfolk that people can now buy pilchards from the harbour and feed them to him.
