And chilly! That’s the lake. So now we’re heading to the water and we’re gonna do some hunting. Yeah this is our traditional fishing day so we’ve been doing this since little kids. The whole thing is about being aboriginal. That way people can come walk with us and experience the same experience as aboriginal.

Pretty amazing this is a total thrill. It has been so much fun experiencing aboriginal culture firsthand and adventuring through the rainforest, spearfishing for crabs, and now, enjoying the fruits of our labor. This has truly been an incredible day.
