The Amazing Boab Tree, Australia.
Wednesday, May 22, 2013
Well, here we are bouncing down the Gibb River Road. It is one of the worst roads I have ever been on! Joanie is laughing at me because I have to hang onto the steering wheel real tight to keep my head from bouncing against the ceiling of the camper. Like she said, its a good thing our dishes are not china, we would have nothing left to eat off of.
Here are just a few of the things we saw. First is a fresh water crocodile. Ann warned us to be very careful because they even like to bit out tires. No way I will get out and change one if they do. lol
No way do I want to get anywhere near one of these babies. And I was told that they are very swift----And there are a whole lot of them, and then they have the saltwater crocodiles too.
I think I will let us put our minds on better things.
a golden bandicoot
a King Brown Snake
which is a venomous snake----(oooh, be careful)
a quoll allof these we ran across in just one day of traveling and then there is the creeks to cross without bridges
And then I see it, how fascinating! It is called a Boab Tree.
This is a boab tree that was used as a prison. It is found just outside of Derby. If trees could talk I am sure it would make a best seller. lol Here are a few more
and look at this cute little thing sitting on a tree
a cute little sugar glider. It has been a long day and we are getting close to our campsite for the night so I will bid you farewell.
One last picture to show some of the art that is made with the nuts from boab trees. Isn't it beautiful. Whish we had more room In the camper.
