Good Old-fashioned Fun: a lake, some kids, and six yabbies

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
These days it can be hard to interest kids in doing anything that doesn’t involve technology, so I was a bit surprised when friends’ kids spent the past 18 hours engrossed in activities involving yabbies fished from Lake Charlegrark, while the adults yarned around the campfire. All six of the yabbies were given names, although they seemed to be quite changeable depending on which kid was holding the yabby!

This photo sums up the energy of the overnight camping trip: playful, joyous, and relaxed.
