Back from Holidays

Ahhh, the break away was wonderful. Leaving Perth in the wind and rain and stepping off at the other end after only 2 hours into bright sunshine and warm weather - life doesn't get much better than that.
Opps yes it does.........sitting on the deck at the Novotel Resort, slurping a mojito, looking out over perfect blue seas and in the distance seeing a whale breaching. Now that is close to perfect............or is it??
Well how about driving over to the west side parking the car up, walking over the dunes, looking at the amazing blue water and seeing it swarming with turtles which are only about a meter off the shore (yes it was turtle egg laying time, so turtle porn was going on everywhere but it didn't seem right taking a picture of that so here is a couple of basic snaps of the turtles LOL).......

I would have to say that was the highlight of my holiday, seeing all the turtles but then again you turn round the next bend in the road and HELLOOOOO a super cute site greets you..........
Daddy emu out for a stroll with his babies...I learnt that the female emu lays the eggs and incubates them and once they hatch she is off and it is up to the ole man to raise the chicks. What was really cool was that when they were walking down the road the dad was on the outside of all the chicks and when a car was coming along he herded them onto the verge.

So all in all a great holiday away with one of my besties, visiting family, drinking to much, eating to much and seeing the wonders of nature in nice warm weather...........
