After another mundane day of school work and camp activities we decided to head to Narawntapu National Park for the evening.

We headed in true convoy style once again with Travelling T family and as we were arriving into the national park I observed a very large black snake slithering on the side of the road, at least this time I had brought my shoes.

As we arrived we could see a wimbat grazing on springlawn and the kids chased it and it naturally ran off, we then decided it would be good to go to the beach to have dinner.

The kids had a great time at the beach making dams and castles, there were many pippies and scallops to be found on the beach. One of the Tracelling T’s was game enough to try one of the pippies and licked it, but thought it tasted like salt water.

As the sun was beggining to set we headed back to springlawn to see what other animals had come out. It was simply amazing to see such an abundant amount of wildlife roaming around the area, there was wallabies, kangaroos, wombats and podaroo’s. The kids would chase the wombats particularly Marcella who wanted to cuddle a wombat.

It was great fun and after a few hours here we headed back at slow speed as the number of wildlife on the side of the road was significant, and we we did not want to add to the many dead ones on the road.
