The Flying Fish examined birds’ wings during writer’s workshop this morning in preparation for their adventure today.
After a few setbacks in their timing, the Flying Fish headed out to the greenery and quiet of Huddart Park in Woodside.
There, they found a monterey ensentina…
… and a black salamander.
They hiked through the damp green of the forest.
And found more treasures along the way.
They made face paint with rocks.
And created bridges over the streams (getting socks wet in the process).
And, as rain seemed imminent, they made shelter: a hermit hut.
The biggest find of the day was a piece of jawbone from some kind of carnivore. What the animal was – you can be sure they’re discussing that tomorrow…
…at the Nature Museum.
