Can you believe we’re into day six of summer here and today I took Chicken Little for a walk wearing a beanie and my warmest jacket. Bizarre weather we’re having.
Anyway yesterday we went to Blackbutt Reserve to have lunch. It’s a little reserve in the city and people go there to have picnics and birthday parties and bbq’s and there is a nice wooden walkway that goes around the place and you can see koalas and kangaroos and insane emus. The schools all have excursions there and the kids love it.
First of all I saw this beautiful swan, who looked a little sad to me.
And I’m not kidding, this emu was insane. They make this weird noise, like a drum and he was drumming. You can buy ice cream cones full of seeds to feed them. You poke them through the fence. I saw a little girl doing it and this guy just went mad for it and grabbed it and tossed it about, all the time drumming. I’m very wary of emu’s, they scare me a bit, I wouldn’t turn my back on one thats for sure.
