We saw this dead beetle but didn't see the 3 leeches which ended up sucking blood from me, and the one which tried Darryl!










This is the crash site of Beautiful Betsy. Undiscovered for almost 50 years.

A nice surprise, as we were going around the 700m circuit was to catch up with a lot of friends from the Bushwalking Clubs, who are on the annual get-together.

A plains turkey (Bustard) decided to cross the road on the way home.
