The Tortoise and the Boys
When we first came to the island my dear friend, Rebecca, took us to Neo Park. Neo Park is known for its flock of birds ranging through the park looking for any tidbits of bread that a passer-by will give. Well, on this day, the birds were angry...very angry. We were mobbed at the entrance door by birds as tall as myself and others that were just tall enough to peck my ankles to death (mom, stop reading). Anyway, after THROWING our bread as far as we could and then RUNNING in the opposite direction to the safety of the path up the hill, we found these gentle giants. All that they wanted was eucalyptise leaves...LOTS of leaves. Oh, and Josh wanted NO PART of these creatures. He could run faster than them but they had big "chompy" lips that he was less than excited about.
