Found a perfect spot to stop in the Booti Booti National Park, right on a surf beach just north of Boomerang. As soon as we pulled up we spotted a large lizard in the grass next to the van, but it wasn’t until a couple of hours later that we realised it was only the baby one, when Mum (or Dad) came out of the bushes in front of us and started to go through the washing up bowl of the people next door. It was about 5 feet long!
“Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.” –Mark Jenkins
