    Boating – On Elcho there are many boats at the beach. I like boats because I like to go hunting for fish and turtles and sting rays. I also like to play around. When we finish hunting I like to go swimming. When it gets dark we make a fire and cook our fish

    Termite Mound

    I like this termite mound because my mum told me that it helps to gather together all the clouds and form a rain. And all the rain drops and all the plants grow. The termite mound grows because it comes from all the sacred stories. The rains make the bush tucker and bush medicine grow new shoots.

    Romeo is fishing

    In this photo is Romeo. He was fishing for our dinner at the beach. We had spent all day at the beach because we had visitors coming down so we can record their voices for our photos to put it up on the Sharing Stories website. Romeo told us his story about the hunters. At the end it was beautiful sunset.
