Roo Zoo aka Rainforest Habitat

kangaroos, wallabys and thousands more

sunny 75 °F

Today was so much fun! i actually got to hold a koalaKoala.jpg and i got to feed a joey that was still in its mothers pouch. They were so sweet. We also went to the beach and the water was actually WARM. you could go out about 100 feet from the beach in the water and you would only be knee deep in water

Word of the Day: crisps=potato chips

This day was one of those magical days when everything was better than expected. Breakfast with the birds was held at the Rainforest Habitat and was just what the title says. We entered an extremely large netted enclosure where the birds were free to fly. There were brightly coloured Lorikeets flying everywhere. You had to stay alert to prevent the birds from poaching your tucker (food). After our breakfast we set off with sacks of roo food to feed Skippy (kangaroo) and all his rellies (relatives). Many of the kangaroos had joeys in the pouch so we could feed two roos at once. Time for more roo food!

At 10 am Annie finally got to hold a koala for a photo session. According to the gameskeeper, the koala belongs to a union that restricts his working time to no more than 30 minutes a day, no more than three days a week. HA!

After the all the feeding of the animals we decamped to Mango Jam’s for a little tucker ourselves.

For me the sweet spot of the day was frolicking in the ocean with Annie. Forgot my camera so mental pictures will have to suffice. Clear blue skies with occasional passing fluffy clouds. Annie outfitted in her new striped cossie, me in capris rolled up pass the knees. Kids of all ages jumping over the waves as the surf swept into shore. A small cluster of surfers were hanging further outside the designated swim area waiting for the right wave to show off their skills at wave riding. There were lots of hoots and laughs as the waves splashed and sprayed us both with warm 24 degree C water.

This all sounds so lovely, but I have noticed that Annie is slacking off on the blogging a bit. Guess she is having too much fun swimming and feeding roos to post. I can certainly understand. It sounds like you are having the time of your lives!
