Toogoom

We drove to Toogoom one day this single tree looked very lonely.

Foggy morning Hervey Bay

This was the view from our apartment window.
I sat and ate my breakfast each morning watching the whale watching boats leave.
This morning it was foggy but still warm.

Wet Side Hervey Bay

Hervey Bay has the best water park called Wet Side.
Imagine the fun as this bucket fills and then empties.

While walking out the Urangan Jetty we noticed these little crabs on the sand below.

There were thousands. When you walk on the beach near them they bury themselves.

Urangan Jetty is very long and when the tide is out there is a lot of sand.

Trees I have never seen before with the most amazing roots.

A walk in the Botanic Park at Hervey Bay was full of excitement for Tony.......... being a pom he is not keen on lizards and crawly things.
He nearly died when this Goana dropped out of the tree and walked away.

Hervey Bay has a fruit bat colony

Friut Bat

as they stretch their wings then wrap themselves up they do remind me of images in the movie Dracula.

Me and you Tony. I have an absolute fear of lizards. I can just about cope seeing a snake but NOT a lizard.

Glad to see you didn't bore us with more brilliant sunshine lol. Had to take squid to the Dr's in pouring rain today the windscreen whippers were working overtime and she asked if we going to die. It has stopped raining now but give it 20 minutes and it will be school pickup and it will start again.
Love the nature shots, I quite like lizards, not so much spiders and love those crabs that would have been quite fun to watch.

Sounds like a great place to be Leanne and a lot to see and do. We have a bat box on the front of our house(inherited from previous owners) and in the evening you can see them swopping around. Have never seen them drop out of the box though.

Beautiful pictures. The scenery is amazing and the places are wonderful but I never went up that far. I am dead scared of creepy creatures like lizards and snakes.Even pictures with them give me goose pimples.
