Hope that link works, "IT" is not my passion.

Not exactly a Great White, or a golf addicted kangaroo, but whilst undressing for bed last night on the boat I pulled off my jeans and stepped on a slug.
Definitely time to put the dehumidifiers on.
At least the rodents have finally pissed off.

all getting a bit Jaws-ey now, shark(s) 3 humans nil (I will ignore the whole shark fishing industry for the sale of drama)

if you are considering a trip to Oz and are looking at renting a yacht to cruise the beautiful Whitsunday Islands, just stay on the damn boat!

We stayed with family weekend before last and watched a TV documentary about the Ghan. It was fascinating for many reasons but I didn't know there were so many original different tribes most of which have gone.

A couple of pics from my new shooting club. Just to confirm a couple of sterotypes.

Dangerous critters and a preference for simple communication

A young friend of mine, 11 at the time, was bitten by a local Rattlesnake on an outing with family.
That and the aftermath was traumatic enough. I can only imagine what mother and school staff went through in this instance.

I live in the bottom right hand corner of OZ. Above is is a few thousand kilometres of dry country and desert, below us is a few thousand kilometers of Southern Ocean and Antarctica. As you can imagine the weather can swing pretty wildly depending on wind direction.

Here is a picture of the thermometer on my deck at 4PM yesterday




and then again at 7AM next morning




variety is good they say

AHA,

Victoria,

4 seasons in one is normal.

Thursday night here did not drop below 34c until 7am Friday morning when a Southerly drifted in, and dropped it to 29c, much more civilised.

Yep, there a millions and millions of them so dont be too perturbed.

We are one of the few nations that gleefully eat our national emblems. The Oz coat of arms has a kanagaroo and an emu. Both quite tasty.

Built like Bald Eagle for Thanksgiving. mmmmm doesnt translate too well does it?
