The Family Sheep

Family Sheep

We met Frida who lives in the farmhouse helping out on the feeding round – amazingly enough after being severely injured she just walks with a limp thanks to the kindness and perseverance of her family.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar

the very hungry caterpillar

Lives on Nordeney… this giant was almost as long as my hand and fatter than my thumb – must be at the tummy ache stage – before making a cocoon – anyone know what kind of butterfly he`ll turn into?

Run Away

Run Away1

This evening all of the boys thought it was so much fun to leg it to the end this wall across the mud flats.

Run Away2

Mega Slide

Megaslide1

Lost count how many times the boys went down this monster – the football and volleyball pitches and playground with flying fox a few metres away on the beach had no appeal in comparison. A great idea to build it onto the bathroom facilities until it’s time to leave and everyone keeps needing to go to the loo again so they can slide one last time!
