After lunch we got to feed lemons to their "pet" bull. I believe he is a Brahma Bull. Massive? I think yes. But look I got pictures!
And he loves fruit, especially lemons. I don't think I ever realized that bulls like fruit. Haha.
The water must be really deep because you can't see the bottom and when kids swing off the rope from tree branches they never come close to the bottom. Or so they say...
I can't even imagine parking like this. Do you think they even realized it?
After walking around the falls we went to the Victoria Park Nature Reserve. Victoria Park is a 17.5 hectare chunk of rainforest completely untouched by man. There is a small trail through the rainforest so we go to walk around and check out all of the interesting and unique plants.
Today was a fantastic day and I am so excited that I got to travel outside and Lismore to see and do different things!
Bruce just sent me the recipe for Pavalo, so be brave and make it if you want to eat something amazing!
4 egg whites 1 dessert spoon cornflour
1 cup castor sugar
Electric — preheat to moderate (180 Celsius).
Gas — preheat to moderate.
(I think this part really means preheat your oven to 360 Fahrenheit)
Draw about an 8 inch circle on baking paper & turn paper over so that mixture doesn’t get ink/pencil on it.
1 teaspoon white vinegar
Beat egg whites until stiff, add 5 cup castor sugar, and beat thoroughly until sugar dissolves. Add remaining sugar, a tablespoon at a time, beating well. Mixture should be reasonably stiff & “shiny”. Lightly fold in sifted cornflour, then vinegar.
Put baking paper on flat tray, dust with cornflour. Put mixture in circle shape onto the paper, level off mixture, don’t make a shell. This mixture will make one deep 9” pav.
REDUCE oven temp to SLOW (150... or 300 degrees F) and bake for about 1 hour. Check to see if it is not burning—it should be just slightly brown. Don’t worry if there are cracks in the shell. Cook a bit more (1/4 hour maximum) if it has no colour. Turn oven off & cool in oven. Top with whipped cream and your favourite fruits. Enjoy. (We enjoyed it topped with strawberries, blueberries, kiwi, and passionfruit!)______________________________
I think I will for sure be making this (or attempting to) when I get back. Well here is a short video from the rainforest adventure. I cannot figure out how to rotate it, but it's a clip of a tree. Just to show you how tall they are here in the rainforest.
