The Whiteheads are here

Dave and Agnes Whitehead showed up at our door last Friday, after a 4 leg, 24+ hour, flight from Sault-Ste-Marie, Ontario, looking surprisingly spry. We let them rest for a day and then took them on a road trip to Jervis Bay, before putting them back on a plane to Darwin. Tanya will meet up with them this weekend in Cairns.

Here are the roadtrip pictures.

Walkabout Park

Last weekend we went to the Australia Wildlife Walkabout Park. We parked, then we walked about. It was wild, but it was also 40C so we gave up and went to the beach instead. Most of the wildlife seemed to consist of spiders anyway.

Here are a few pictures.

Devil's playground

Tasmania from Pat Morin on Vimeo.

Last weekend Tanya and I spent a few days in Tasmania, where we saw seals, penguins, Tasmanian devils, kangaroos, wallabies, potaroos, ostriches, emus, big-belly seahorses, bandicoots, kelp forests, old prisons, and lots of spectacular scenery.

Here are some of the photos.
