Travel Theme : Animals (3)

Cassowary comes visiting, originally uploaded by gypsy woman1.

This was one creature we had a very up close and personal view of. Look at Jack’s face, he is quite worried…

This encounter was at Boulders National Park near Innisfail when we visited there in July 2011. I have a video I took at the same camp ground to see it click on this link..

This is my third entry this week for Ailsas Travel Theme. You can see lots more by clicking on the link and visiting her site

Travel Theme :Animals (2)

In 2010 when we did the BIG trip around Australia that took us a year, we discovered “house sitting”. It was a great way to have a break from the road, and a bit more room to spread out. We like living and travelling in Matilda and have adjusted to the lack of space, but, oh boy, it was good to have a proper kitchen, toilet and bathroom just down the hallway, a place we could call home for a few weeks.

The bonus was having pets to pamper, take for walks, discovering new areas, and a warm furry body to cuddle. (I don’t mean Jack 🙂 ).

We did 3 different house sits during the year and these are the animals we cared for…

Ailsa from “Where’s my backpack” inspired us this week with the theme Animals. I have been so inspired that this is my second post about animals. Click on Ailsas blog to see many more animals…
