As I began my journey home from
last Monday’s visit to Port Fairy…
…I came upon this roadside display at Killarney.
So close to the Princes Highway it is hard to miss.
The small peak in the background is
the Tower Hill inner cone stretching
above ground level.
Don’t be misled by my photo,
Tower Hill’s main crater
is 3.2 kilometres by 2.4 kilometres,
with a crater with a depth of more
than 90 metres (300 ft).
…sums up a Labrador’s appetite perfectly
The treat I want to share this week is
our last African game drive in
the first week of October 2013.
There wasn’t supposed to be a drive the last day,
however, we were treated to one and
it was one I will never forget.
Limpy (she had a deformed foot) and
her six week old cubs were the stars.
At six weeks the cubs were ready…
…to play with anything…
Go and play with the tourists instead of my tail.
Nosy obligingly heads off…
…for some tourist watching.
Rosy is a bit shy.
Our intrepid explorer keeps on coming…
…until he comes upon some elephant dung…
…which smells delightful and tastes even better.
Rosy joins Nosy now that Nosy is safe.
Don’t they look regal upon their throne?
Put on a show for the tourists?
Let’s show them how tough we are.
