With the edge of a hurricane tickling the north Queensland coast you would think it’d be the wrong time to go for a stroll.
But stroll we did, and lovely it was too.
We even found time for a bit of lounging about.
The wind was whipping up the trees, but with the heat it was actually a blessed relief.
And it provided an unexpected bonus too in the shape of a bit of windfall.
With a bit of effort, and a handily placed stump,
we managed to free the nut within. But then, what to do with it?
To begin with of course there’s the water.
But that tasted nasty, so we moved swiftly on to the flesh within. That proved easier to get to,
and what we found inside maybe provided us with the explanation for the funny water.
Still, the flesh itself was pretty good,
but with so much of it what to do then? Well, make it into a curry of course.
The coconut fried up a treat,
and we were rewarded with a tasty meal to enjoy.
All in all, not a bad afternoon’s work if I do say so myself. 😀
Life’s fun when you know how to amuse yourself. 😉
