Leonard in the Kimberley

 

This is my family riding dromedary camels ย along ย Cable Beach in Broome. Dromedary camels have one hump that is used to store fat. This is helpful for the camel if ย it gets hungry as it can use the hump as a source of food or water. The camels take six years to train and began as a mixture of wild and domesticated camels. The camel that Oliver and I rode was called Jacko and is a retired racing camel.

 

This is an enormous boab tree! I discovered it at a rest area when I woke up one morning. Boab trees have thick trunks that are sometimes hollow. They have thick trunks to store water as the climate in the Kimberley region is very hot.

 

The gorge behind me is Emma Gorge in El Questro park in the north of the Kimberley region in Western Australia. It is a beautiful place and its hard to describe how beautiful it is. Gorges are deep valleys that have a river flowing in the bottom, they are formed by the water wearing the rock away over a very long time.

 

We are enjoying a natural bath in Zebidee springs in El Questro park. This is a natural spring that is heated deep down in the earth and is a fantastic place to hang out. The water was 34 degrees!

  2. Hi Leonard.
    We all want to be with you too! Please bring us up there now! We are freezing in our cold classroom where our heater is broken!
    Were the camels smelly Leonard? Mrs Moore has been on a camel ride in Alice Springs. Have you been there, or are you going there?
    You have obviously learnt a lot while you have been away. We have been learning lots too – especially about the thylacines. Have you read our blogs about them?
    We will see you soon Leonard! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚
