Tiny Ted meets an emu!

Today we took Tiny Ted for a drive to the beach at Mapua for a look around. It was very nice looking out at high tide and watching the children make sandcastles.
On the way home we went down Research Road and came across a paddock of friendly emu. Tiny Ted was a bit scared of the emu and was worried that the huge bird might gobble him up. Miss K was a bit worried too when this one wanted a close up look eyeball to eyeball. The emu were hairy and furry and feathery all at the same time- what very strange birds they are with feet like a raptor- what kind of raptor would that be Harry?
