We spent the morning at the local craft market showing our friends from out of town around
We loved the displays of colourful didgeridoos on sale
And all these beautifully carved African drums
We even enjoyed an African BBQ Lunch of Peri-Peri chicken burgers
Two carved Laughing Kookaburras stood sentinel at this store
and some gorgeous lillies in a variety of colours caught our attention
Tibouchinas trees are in bloom in Autumn
They have a mass of bright magenta purple flowers
After lunch we headed north to the beach for the afternoon
While most of us swam Daddy and Son (who had injured his toe) went for a walk and found this very interesting crab hole in the sand. Don't you think the way it pushes out these tiny balls of sand in a pattern is intriguing? It almost looks like a flower.
Clever little fellow!
Our son made us all leave our handprints on the sand
Then just before dusk we went fishing in the river. We only caught one fish that measured the right length to keep....
...but he lived to see another day because a very kind hearted little boy couldn't bear to see him eaten!
So he was gently placed back into the river and darted away like a silver streak.
Hmmm.....now why couldn't we have come along?
