Uh-oh..and some of them are right here, in the middle of the road, en-route to the birding lookout. Go through 40 cm, according to the post (almost 16") of water in the middle, or turn back and add another 70 klms to our journey. We'd been advised to just stick to one side, don't drive through the middle because of deeper pot-holes.
distracted for a moment with the pelicans out there, and such a pretty sky
someone comes by, stops and checks if we're o.k., and on their way again. We'll watch them!
Our turn, taking the plunge
some further along the road, lush reedbeds
...and some ominous looking clouds
and further along ...way in the distance, what's that scurrying around the edge of the road? Binoculars out..
for heavens sake, they're wild pigs!
It was some further along though that we decided on a nice spot under the trees, to stop for a cuppa break, and then continued on again.
