Now there's something you don't see every day

So my family and I are at the Thirroul Arts Festival.

The kids are with the husband scoffing fairy floss and getting turned upside down on the rides, while I perused the sculptures on the beach.



I'm madly snapping away when something made me turn around.



Crikey! Now there's something you don't see every day.

Nope!! Mind you, we had a camel living in a little town 15 minutes away. There were camel rides at The Show etc in the Apple Isle!! Interesting sculptures too!!
Oh did you have a camel ride??

I didn't Cindy, but the husband and the daughter did.

Actually, my husband and I went camel riding for a whole day in Morocco once - way back when my life was child-free and much more glamourous.

I suspect there is one person who makes a living out of selling beach camel rides at community events on NSW's east coast. When I lived at Manly they would bring the camels out for various festivals and things a couple of times a year. (I was always worried about where the camels slept overnight when the festivals ran over several days.)

Meg - there were two female camel handlers who seemed extremely conscious of the camel's welfare. They was obviously a lot of mutual respect and dare I say it, affection, between those beasts and the women.

But, true enough, I don't know where they come from.

Don't camels sleep standing up anyway?

Actually, camels are something that I do see quite frequently! Heh heh heh!
