The Aussie sense of humour

I'm sure that every one has heard of the mythical monster that inhabits the waters of Loch Ness in Scotland, but are you aware that here in South Australia we also have a creature living in the salt encrusted waters of a lake in the mid-north of our state ? Just on the northern side of the town, Lochiel.

You might have to click on the photo to get a good look at it. I was lucky to be there at the time it "surfaced" to take a breath (lol) There it was....the Loch Eel !!

I took this picture some years ago when we were traveling through to the Territory. One, or maybe a few of the local "wags" have constructed "OUR" monster from car tyres. Good old Aussie humour !!
