back to blogging

Ok so I have been rather lazy of late. As we went away to Prague for a weekend and then it was my birthday, so I hadn't really sat down to do some blog work in a long time. I recently got Marty back on track with her blog Coffee Beans Trail. So therefore it is time I did the same for me. Also, let's face, it the English Premier League is over for another year and the World Cup is another 4 weeks away, so I should have plenty of free time on my hands!

Ok, so we will head back to the world that is Australia.... shall we?

The daily question from Marty was "Can we see Koalas today?". So let's do it!

So once upon a time....
In a Park named ClelandThere was a girl called Marty. Marty nearly cried when I said to her that this would be the only Koala she would touch during the day and her stay in Australia.
However, we trekked off into a really love park full of native Australian things, birds, trees, and animals. Full of hope and energy.
Something tells me that there are kangaroos about.....
So we started in the wetlands area. Here we see an Australian waterbird trying to eat a yabby which for you Poles is like a Rak
Then we strolled into the caged area to see the beautiful kingfishers, one of my favourite birds.
Also the Cockatiels
The Finches (I think sounds like a band name) which is nice as we used to live in Linnet St which is a type of Finch! The world comes full circle.
Then we ran into a slightly bigger bird.
They had funny feet.
Which as you can see made Marty a little hesitant. "This isn't furry nor is it in a tree like a Koala" She screamed as it pecked her little hands.
Oh, here's something furry, Marty! We then ran into Marty's new favourite animal. The wombat. This one was nice enough to pose for us, well kind of. He was scratching his bum on the rock.Then the CFS (Country Fire Service) started a back burn operation to reduce the risk of bushfires in the near future. It is something that they do from time to time in Australia and is actually beneficial for many plants as it starts their germination process.
This of course had some effect on the sunlight. It caused the middle of the day to feel like sunset and for Marty, it was an amazing experience as she loved the smell of the Eucalyptus.
It certainly spooked the animals a little.
Well, not all of them. For some it was just too hard! Time for a nap.

Cross the old legs!
Or just stretch them out in readiness for a nap.

Unless you are really hungry and then here comes the Kangaroo equivalent of dialing for a pizza, maybe we could name it Marty Hut, or Martinoes.
Some weren't as forthcoming.
Most would give sniffle to see what food there was.
And we have a bingo!
But eventually Marty won most animals over.
"Now that I am fed how about some modelling shots. I think this is my good side" said the Kangaroo to me.
Big whiskers for a young kangaroo.
"You certainly have pretty eyes, lady Kangaroo"

"But where are the Koalas?!" I would soon hear.
"Here" I said. A grumble of disagreement met this statement "But I want to touch one" said the little blonde girl.
"Fine, meet Hank. He is ten years old and would love someone to touch his bum. Be my guest!"
As we were leaving, the Potteroo waved "Come back soon, Marty only fed the big animals! I feel left out."
And there ended Marty's animal fairy tale.
