Come on, we’re going for a walk
One thing I love to do on a Monday morning is to take a stroll with Restless Jo. I’m pretty sure I’ve been around the world and back several times on her blog. So I thought it was about time I joined in and took you on a walk of my own. Now this isn’t Spain or Monsaraz, it’s just my little corner of the world in Australia’s far north.
Make sure you wear some light and comfortable clothing and don’t forget your hat (or a towel will do)
Here are some facts before we start:
Average yearly temperature: 27C (80F)
Average yearly rainfall: 1992mm (78in)
Main produce: Sugar cane
Main tourist attraction: Great Barrier Reef
Best house: The RUC (I just had to add that in) 😀
This walk is a nature walk through the Cairns Dome. Even though we have most of these creatures around the farm (apart from the crocodile – yay) I chose the Dome because, unlike the animals that fly and run around the farm, these ones stay still for easy shots.
The Tawny Frogmouth is my favourite. It’s a bird but often mistaken for an owl. Wikipedia tells me that the Frogmouth birds have been around for about 56 million years.
The Papuan Frogmouth is also a bird (don’t call it an owl or it may frown at you). They are bigger than the Tawny Frogmouth
Kookaburra – his head is a bit blurry because I think he was laughing at my towel hat
So there you have it. I hope you didn’t trip over or get sunburned or bitten by anything (I don’t have insurance).
To everyone who helped with my book trailers last week I’m sending big hugs! I’ve done a few more and have put links next to my book pictures on the right of this page. Please feel free to check them out (and let me know if they’re enticing or just plain boring).
Have a great week!
