I was looking back through some old holiday photos on Sunday and I thought I would use this one as my Monday blog post because it still puts a smile on my face.
This picture was taken in the museum at Alice Springs (the name of which I can’t remember) when we were on holiday there in 2010. Number 1 had seen the museum as we were passing one day and requested a visit. We had no idea where it was and said that if he directed us there we would go. He managed to get us across town and into the carpark with no problem. Very impressive for a nine year old!*
It was only a small museum, but had a mineral section that rock-addicted Number 2 was very pleased with. The majority of the exhibitions were excellently presented bones and animals that kept us in there for ages.
I took heaps of photos (as usual) but this one is probably my favourite. I prefer beetles wandering around in my garden, not pinned and mounted, but when I saw this display (on this angle) I laughed. All I could see were ranks of recently departed beetles marching earnestly into the light of the afterlife.
No? You don’t see it? Ok, it’s probably just me….
* It was just as well Number 1 knew where to go, because we had absolutely no idea where it was and found Alice Springs a very annoying place to drive around in.
Early in our stay we needed the GPS to get us back to the caravan park from the supermarket, only a few k’s away, because we had taken the wrong street and got completely turned around! We had driven halfway across Australia without a problem but got lost two streets away… pathetic!
