For those of you who were equally impressed at the "hoppy critter" outside our camp - I can confirm that I got "up close" to wild Kangaroos and Wallabies on this adventure.
I am flabbergasted about these furry things..... I've never seen them this close before - and mum says I eat bits of them all the time - my roo chews and roo tendons! So I can confirm that these do not taste like chicken.... much yummier! Look at the camp fires and the campers ..... the roos look comfortable with how close they are.
(**I wonder if they have the recipe for "roo chews"??**)
You guys asked me if I was out chasin' em..... and the answer is "I wanted to!!" but the station here has an "all dawgs on lead at all times policy"..... bugger huh?
Oh Crikey !!! Did you see that mum????!!! Did you have the flashy box handy!!?
These cheeky buggers are REALLY big birds..... mum calls them emus.... and they are walkin' straight past our camp! It's time for me to get out there and have a sniff around!
These emus are just walkin' about out here! I wonder what they'd taste like?? Chicken you think?
That was awesome don't ya think? Now - some of you have previously asked to see the inside of the PKW - so come have a look!
my our double bed - note the curtains are closed to stop some of the direct sun heat from getting in.
Here is the sink and the gas hobs - which mum has left closed because she brings the portable hot plate to cook on when we are plugged into power.
Round further to the front of the PKW and we have the blue PKW coffee machine (mum can't rough it and not have good coffee in the morning) (**can you say "soft"**) ! The bin, our convection/microwave and our PKW TV/DVD player. I know what you are thinkin' - yes my peeps need a certain amount of creature comforts! (**feel free to roll your eyes upward...... I do!**)
The view out the front dome window.... the patch of trees directly in front of us was the scene of my first Kangaroo encounter on the first morning.
That's me stalkin' em(!) They were skeered to see me comin' their way! Look how they both have their beady eyes on me!
Then there is a step down to our patio. I get freaked by the silver step - so I jump over it to get in and out.
Pretty comfy huh? Oh and mum insisted that the van is fitted with reverse cycle heating and cooling...... because she is soft!
In answer to my bloggin' bro's question (George the Lad) there were many turns and curves on our roads..... and we even went on some dirt ones. You should have seen the state of the car!
Another of our views from base camp.
Yes it was hot.......
And we visited an old Homestead ruin.....
But I'm going to show you some of the walks, sights and scenery from look-outs and stuff..... coming real soon ......!
