After a good nights sleep and a little bit of a lie in we went to get some breakfast. Cowboy dad and his two girls obviously had the same idea; they strode across the breakfast area all wearing jeans with heavy duty leather belts, straw cowboy hats and boots (complete with spurs!).

... the underside of the car park fence, and so began the great Conchas Lake bug hunt. Next to be seen in the car park was a damselfly, followed by a very large green grasshopper and then a small yellow shield bug (one of about 5 million!).
