Jumping ahead again! Emu crossing! Yay! We soon found out why… The caravan park had its own resident emu! He was not shy and often came over when he saw us outside. He wasn’t afraid of the kids at all, he probably knew they were likely to have food. This is officially my favourite kind of palm. It’s like the branches are in 3D. I think it’s a foxtail palm. We went across the road to have a bike ride on the beach. I know. We’re horrible, horrible people. Bike riding on the beach while everyone else endured the whole Antarctic vortex thing. We did have our jackets on, see? To get from one end of the beach to the other is a much longer ride than you’d think. I know, poor us. The kids took a break and did some exploring. At least they had their helmets on! Look at that cute bike! I wonder who that belongs to? 😉 Those little specks down the beach are my children. It was a big beach. When we got to the other end there was more exploring to be done. And when we returned we were greeted by our new friend!
