Emus, Skink and Echidna at The Coorong, 22.Aug.2014
The Coorong National Park would be the farthest point from home in South Australia I have ventured out to, thus far. Inspired by Zuzana's road trip, we took the Friday off with John to visit the wetlands.
We made it to the national park in under 2 hours. While at Parnka Point (of Coorong), the slightest evidence of wildlife would bring the car to an immediate halt and have us jumping out with our smartphones.
John and I made a sprint -- my farthest sprint ever and in heavy hiking boots, no less -- towards what we suspect to be an echidna. It was. To catch a sight of this spiky creature was worth huffing and puffing.
That was quite a day and I wonder if it is going to be just as exciting the next time.
