Someone once said "never let children or animals have the last word" (or something similar!) so I'll start with my cute little animal pictures. Most of these were taken at the Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary, animals in the wild don't pose quite so well, as they are usually moving fast or not moving at all!
If you ever get down to Australia, do take time to visit a sanctuary, most often they are rescued animals that are in a breeding programme to improve populations or overall health and often released back into the wild. Check out the Bonorong Sanctuary here: http://bonorong.com.au/
Here's the little Tasmanian Devil, an ugly creature in my opinion and rather snarly. But I guess someone loves them!
I was able to get up close to an Emu and we had a little staring contest. I was surprised at the purple colour on his neck. It shows only slightly in this photo.
My favourite little animal was quite shy but ever so cute, he is called an Echidna (maybe its a she) and has a lovely little waddle when walking, perhaps I feel a kinship there! Even though the quills look prickly apparently they are stiff rather than sharp. And the cutest long nose.....
So those are my holiday pics! Many thanks to Chris for taking me on the wildlife tour....I'll be posting some classroom/workshops pictures soon so you can see the wonderful fabrics that were created! Stay tuned!
