home again, home again

kangaroo in action

view one way

and view the other

sandy bay

we saw red dirt and white sand, turquoise water and vast dry scrubland with it's own beauty. we saw emus and wedge tailed eagles, goannas and geckos, bustards and many, many kangaroos. we saw dolphins, whales and sea turtles, too numerous to list schools of tiny fish and groups of huge ones and the most amazing colours and shapes of coral. we drove and talked and thought, swam and fished and snorkelled, watched sunsets and a couple of sunrises, played scrabble on the laptop and worked on house plans in the evenings. all in all, a lovely and relaxing chance to spend time with my best friend.

  6. welcome back. a story for you on bustard. my day time job is planning safaris to tanzania. and we have the kori bustard in tanzania [and other parts of africa]. well some of the guides in tanzania with a thick tanzanian accent when they point out the bird, it sounds like they have said kori bastard. :)
