I’d heard a lot about it from friends and family who had been camping there before and was really looking forward to seeing it. I… Continue reading Neurum Creek Bush Retreat
We have two adult blue tongued lizards that live in our yard – one out the front and one out the back. They like to live in the drainage pipes that capture the storm water run off, although the one that lives out the front will come into the garage when it is very hot.… Continue reading Blue tongued lizards
