During our adventure Alice and Benji also followed some peacocks around and spied on the orchids in the screened-in gazebo. It was a pretty idyllic setting, and I can easily imagine my fabulous life as the owner of Valley House. You'd all be invited, of course.
Alice went off exploring near a palm tree and ran back screaming and motioning wildly. I soon realized that she had moved a piece of palm frond on the ground and uncovered a large cane toad. This made her daddy so proud (turning over logs to look for critters is a trademark of a dedicated herpetologist)! Alas, no turtles in the traps yet... I can't wait to share some pictures of those ugly beasts.
