Yes, Virginia...There Are Camels On the Beach by 

Taken at Victor Harbor, South Australia on a photoshoot with fellow bubblers Bill O’Neil and Andy Gii often referred to as Abbott & Costello.
So there I was, happily taking shots of the pony rides on the beach, trying to maintain my focus, when all the while in the background, I could hear references to there being camels on the beach. Given I’ve been teased before about the presence (or lack of) snakes on photoshoots with these guys, I chose to ignore their ribbing and continued with my own efforts.
Imagine my surprise, when I turned around and lo and behold…there WERE camels on the beach…THREE in fact! This was definitely a first for me!
