We get hit by an emu in Cue, Western Australia

We stayed the night in Cue, north-west Western Australia, which is a very historic place. It was once home to 10,000 people but as the gold mines closed, so the town began to die. However, at the moment there is a lot of mining in the region and the town is clean and a welcome rest point for many a traveller. The government offices were built very early in the 20th century and remain very impressive. The stone used in the building is a very attractive golden colour, especially in the late afternoon sun. The hotel is also a typical West Australian country hotel and I also liked the rotunda. We definitely won’t have wifi for at least six days now so stay safe and happy. Oh, by the way, an emu slammed into us yesterday so there will be more panel beating to the car when we get back home. The emu walked away but I bet it has a headache.

I hope the Emu is safe. Sorry to hear that your car ran into it. So is the Western Australian weather heating up now? The Indian cricket team's tour to Australia has ran into some disagreements. Some folks want a few matches in Perth but there are some logistics issue and some issues with the state which has the Adelaide City. Anyways, have a great Friday ahead.
looks a very sunny place over there. It is just sad that it didn’t prosper but it was nice it was preserved as it is. I wonder what happened to the emu? i know it looks like an ostrich. l hope that he is fine and recovered from the crash. How was the car now?

@crazyhorseladycx Hopefully if they were hit by a big truck, they'd die very quickly. I certainly wouldn't want to hit one. This is one of the bulls we saw at a camping spot. There was a billabong (water-hole) there and a lot of cattle came in to drink in the late afternoon. That's a picnic table in the foreground. He wasn't quite as close as he seems. :)
