We had a wonderful walk today despite the realisation that the egg hunt we planed to take part in was the day before! Turns out we don’t regret it at all. Three hundred people showed up. Not exactly what I was looking forward to.
We enjoyed the green wet forest and saw a lot of interesting critters that Krista pointed out. I had never seen frog’s eggs before and I totally missed the salamander on the trail the first time I walked by. She also took home a sampling of owl pellets found in the crook of a tree with the hopes of dissecting them later. Too cool! I had just been reading about owl pellets this morning!
Can you spot Kale? He’s hiding to scare his brother who was dancing down the trail!
Sam running to catch up with the bigger kids!
Frog’s eggs in gelatinous fluid. It floats in the water and kind of attaches or catches on sticks and other things in the water.
He had a cute orange underside and as you can see we were soaking by the end of the walk. It was quite wet!
The day ended with a delicious shared meal. Krista’s family supplied the roast chicken and pumpkin cinnamon buns and we brought roasted potato and asparagus salad with chili vinaigrette and cilantro . It was all so good!
