Spot Prawn

We hit up the Spot Prawn Festival, in Victoria. Spot prawns aren’t like other prawns, they:

  1. are huge, and I mean big. You can’t really call these things shrimp.
  2. have a big spot on them (hence the name Spot Prawn)
  3. are local
  4. taste different, hard to explain, very tasty

My Parents at Cathedral Grove

Standing in front of a large Douglas Fir tree. There are bigger trees in the park, but I think this tree wanted to be in a photo with my folks

Cathedral Grove

Old growth forests are amazing, hard to believe this island was covered in them. Now, the only place you can see 800 year old Douglas Fir trees is if you got to Cathedral Grove. We went as a family, with my parents to check this place out. Worth a stop for sure, this popular stop is pretty cool.

Learning to crawl

Oliver has been a handful lately. He is no longer satisfied staying in one position and has found that he can move around. Currently he only moves backwards, and only by pushing himself with his hands (which isn’t really crawling).

Vigorous self imposed exercise routine

Oliver has taken it upon himself to teach himself how to crawl, and he will spend about 4 hours a day working on it. Grunting and moaning, you can tell that he is trying hard to get it. During his sessions, Tanya and I will gather around him cheering him on like he is a top athlete competing at the olympics.

‘Way to go Oliver, you can do it!’

Did we do this?

It is amazing to see how determined he is to learn this new skill. Everyone that walks today likely went through the same experience and it is amazing how hard we are willing to push ourselves at that age.

If you learned how to crawl, you can learn to do anything.
