Kangaroos watching us on the way towards Lake Wyara.

After walking for quite some time, we arrived at a hill crest only to discover the lake to be still far away.

We could see lots of pelicans flying over the lake from afar.

We decided to return to the car. On the way back the grunt of a pelican made us look up. There were many pelicans overhead.

Driving back we had 2 Emus running in front of us. They look funny with their skirts swishing. Not very elegant.

We decided to drop into a third lake that I had not heard of, Lake Kaponyee.

A lot of Emus were just leaving the area.

We also saw a lot of these birds

I obviously frightened them off, just to return shortly afterwards.

Samphire plants looked healthy around here.

In some areas the soil was very dry and cracked where the lake waters had receded from a previous flood level.

We returned to our car to drive to The Granites.
