Well first to answer a question that Blueberry's Mom had ... Then just pictures ..... I wouldn't want to take up too much of Charlie's precious post. I have to say Da Phenny made me laugh big time with his comment when he said when his Mama reached into her pocket for her phone so she could take a picture all she came up with was a poop bag. I've been there and done that so many times. My pockets ALWAYS have poop bags AND treats in them. But back to Blueberry's Mom's question. She didn't know what salties and freshies were. Salties are saltwater crocodiles AND DEADLY and freshies are freshwater crocodiles and not so deadly. Freshies aren't real big and don't worry you if you don't worry them. I've swam in heaps of places with freshies around without a problem. There's no way I'd swim anywhere near salties though. Now to the rest of the pics. Oh my ..... I've just looked at the ones I chose and Charlie's right. Way too many. I wanted to show you 36 pics. That's way too many, aye?? So here's just a few (more than just a few I'm afraid) .... oh and it's better if you biggefy them.
|Many an hour was spent here. The wallabies, birds and buffalo were great company.
|From inside our room! Although we didn't spend much time here
|There was always someone wandering by and the noises at night ..... oh my!!
|Such pretty sunsets. I'm afraid the phone just didn't do them justice. The bloke from Michigan took some stunners. I was so envious of his whopping big telephoto lens. He took an amazing photo of a saltwater croc too.
|Lotus lillies. Oh so pretty and useful too. You can eat all of them and the stem can be used as a straw for drinking and the local aborigine women used them as a hat. We had them in one of our meals one night. Delicious!
|This was a huge eagle. Again ..... wish I had my camera. He was truly beautiful through binoculars.
|Loved the air boat. The places it could go! Amazing!! I swear there was NO water under us at times. if you live in the US I believe you use them in the Everglades.
|I loved this place. They called it kingfisher lagoon. So many kingfishers and bee catchers to be seen.
|This was a Jabiru nest and Mrs. Jabiru was standing up. Again the Michigan man got a great shot. Me ..... not so much but you can see her if you biggety it.
|These blokes were all over the place.
|Good looking specimen, aye??
|Mumma and baby. That baby was still in the Mumma's pouch from time to time. You'd wonder how it would fit but it did. Probably not for much longer.
|The next few pics I stole again. Sorry to whoever took them but I'm just trying to show how brilliant your skills are compared to mine.
|Brolgas ..... We saw some just like this.
|Crikey ..... makes my wallaby pic look cheap, aye??
|Magpie geese. They were everywhere but I couldn't capture them like this.
|Dead scary! I ALWAYS kept my hands INSIDE the boat.
Thank goodness that's over, aye?? Now here's some pics of an encounter I had on the beach yesterday arvo. I was just wandering around minding my own business when out of nowhere this greyhound sheila ran at me at a million miles an hour. Crikey I thought I was fast but I was no match for her although I could beat her over a short distance. She ALWAYS caught me though. We had a great time. I hope she comes back another day. Her name was Piper. Pretty name, aye??
|I'm in the lead ..... but not for long!!
|Crikey ..... what long legs we have!!
|We found this great puddle to cool off in but by the time Mum got her camera out from amongst the poop bags and treats we'd had enough.
Wanna run ..... Love, Charlie.
