An after storm view.
It wouldn’t be Christmas without a large spider. We were having a look at a friends bush retreat, that is a normal sized window he’s next to.
A lonely Emu in the Flinders National Park in South Australia. I can only imagine he was looking for his presents.
It wouldn’t be Christmas without antlers. The pic isn’t the best quality, I took it with my phone camera. They were grazing in a paddock 500 yards from our front gate. They are Red Deer and are descendants of deer that were introduced into the state in the 1880’s, a gift from Queen Victoria to the hunting gentlemen of Queensland. I think she sent 3 stags and 5 hinds. They came from her estates in Scotland, so it seems apt that they are amongst the thistles.
The kids always argue over who received the biggest presents, although I think choking your little brother isn’t sporting.
I haven’t selected a video for this week’s blog, I’ve been busy, busy. So I thought this picture was a good choice for the season, it’s my wife Lorelle and I at Christmas Creek in the Lamington National Park. We were hiking up to the site of the Stinson plane crash site. I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy and prosperous New Year. Cheers from Laurie and Lorelle.
THANK YOU FOR STOPPING BY.
