Late in the afternoon, one of our neighbours came out with some bread to feed the black kites. Feeding native animals bread is usually not my thing, but it was pretty special to see these large birds of prey swooping down and either catching the food or deftly grabbing it from the surface of the water that flowed so swiftly by. Amazing!
The boys spent a part of the afternoon very industriously searching for firewood. It was great to see them so busy with a task, backwards and forwards over the river. We finished the evening by lighting a fire, something the kids had been longing to do for ages. It was a little spirited at first, but soon died down to a manageable blaze, just right for toasting a few marshmallows.
