Out damn itch

Things I’m loving about this holiday. The warm weather. Not being at work. Spending time with my son when we’re not at home.

Things I’m not loving about this holiday. The mosquitos, the bloody mosquitos. I can’t believe how I’ve been bitten. I’ve got bites like I’ve never had before. Red, blistering bites. It’s awful. I’m now covered in repellant and I had to buy some ointment to help stop the itching, and I’m on anti-histamines. I bought the anti-histamines for my son incase he ate something he’s not supposed to.

We’re about 5-10 minutes walk from Four Mile Beach so down we went for a walk.

I loved looking at all the little holes that little crabs? make.

Fork in the road. That way mum. I should have listened but I don’t mind getting a little bit lost when I’ve got time to do so.

We visited a nearby wildlife park where most animals are pretty free to roam and quite a few birds just hang around in the restaurant.

I also think it was where I got a lot of my mosquito bites.

I love the way Tawny Frog Mouths blend into the branches they sit on and look really chilled. I think I could learn a thing or two from them.

And koalas aren’t really bears you know.
