Camel Stroll

Camel Stroll

 

Camels on Lighthouse Beach, Port Macquarie.
Three interesting facts about camels:
1. Contrary to popular belief, they do not store water in their humps…it’s actually a mound of fatty tissue from which the camel derives energy when food is scarce.
2. They have two sets of eyelashes to protect their eyes from sand and can also close their nostrils to prevent sand from getting up their nose.
3. You can fuel a fire with their poo because it’s so dry!
So there you go. Next time you’re trekking across the Sahara with your camel and you’ve run out of fire starter cubes to get your campfire going, just grab a handful of camel dung!

Ghost Walkers

Ghost Walkers

 

I named this image “Ghost Walkers”, thinking it was a pretty clever title.
But then I thought, “Do ghosts have feet?”
Don’t they just float around making noises similar to a cow giving birth?
Hmmm…I guess these COULD just be human footprints.
Kinda ruins the theme of the post though. Oh well.

Lighthouse Beach – January 2013
I would like to claim credit for this piece of sand art,
however I only stumbled upon it on my evening walk.
Pretty impressive, although I bet the first kid to spot it the next morning
would have destroyed it!
