Last Sunday was Mothers Day so the girl, the girls mum and I drove down to our farm to have lunch with my family. I bought my mum six different bottles of pinot grigio for mothers day so I was in the good books when we got down there. It was a beautiful day so the drive down was enjoyable. I have been doing that drive since I was five years old and there is something different every time. Its such a nice drive.
We did the usual walk around the property and then got our Mini Moke out of the shed and drove around for a bit. We saw the Kangaroos that live on our property and plenty of birds. Just as we were about to head up to the house for lunch, the girl and I drove through our bottom paddock and I saw an lump on the ground. At first I didn't realize what it was but then it dawned on me, it was an echidna! We have seen echidna's in the area but never on our property so it was amazing to learn that there is one living there. It was very scared at first and dug down into the ground but after a while it got up and roamed around us like we weren't even there. I have only ever seen a few echidna's in my life and this was the biggest one. He was quite a fatty.
