|What almost occurred|
The next day we drove home via a National Park come mental hospital and after driving through some spooky woods arrived at a big stretch of grass. We were here to see kangaroos and we weren't disappointed. This was my first kangaroo sighting (if you don't include the roadkill) and I was positively terrified. Stories of kangaroos disemboweling people, not to mention their tendency for boxing, rushed through my mind. We spotted a big group out with their joeys to catch some of the good weather and watched them from a safe distance. As we enjoyed their cute hopping and grazing I started to relax. But then, out of the corner of my eye, I saw Kanga Kong bounding up the road heading straight for us. We started to walk back towards the car and he bounded towards us further. At this point I started running- and wondering why these dangerous and blood-thirsty animals were allowed to walk around willy nilly. It turned out he was just heading to his troop who we'd just been watching and we marveled at his size from the safety of our car. Don't mess with the 'roos.
Next time. Melbourne Cup, Ben Harper in concert and Spit to Manly walk. Yes, there is a place called Manly!
