G'day mate.....!


Aimee and I haven't been walking together for ages, she's been busy, I've been busy, you know how it goes! Yesterday however we were in like minds and set off on one of our favorite walks through Hepburn Heights bushland and Pinaroo Valley Memorial Park . I think even the kangaroos were pleased to see us, standing up alongside the path as we went past looking as if to say 'G'day mate, where've you been!!' We're getting in some practice for the Mother's Day Classic in May, an 8kms walk to raise money for Breast Cancer Research. I can't think of a better way to spend Mother's Day apart from if my Mum was here to share it, THAT would be the best! A fresh week beginning, let's hope it's a good one.....

  4. I lived for almost 6 years in the Earl's Court area in London, aka Kangaroo Valley (plenty backpacker hotels full of antipodeans looking for a job), but I've never actually seen one. Lucky you!

  10. Love that you get to see kangas while out walking. They must be very accustom to seeing people so close to them. How nice!

  11. How great to be able to see the kangaroos! I count myself lucky if I get to see squirrels and deer...of course, we don't have kangaroos over here, unless they are at the zoo..love the photos!

  15. I love it when you post photos like this because it is so unusual to what I'm used to. I keeping thinking how fun it would be to encounter such unique creatures on a walk in the park.

  16. Kangaroos are such interesting creatures! I think it must be rather exciting to be greeted by them as you go walking by!

  17. This is probably bizarre, but these animals remind me of Winnie, the Pooh--perhaps it's because Ilove both Kanga and roo!

  24. After reading your post about the Pinaroo Valley Memorial park recently, I actually went there for a visit, and was pleasantly surprised with such a beautiful cemetery.
    I loved the kangaroos there as well, what a beautiful sight!

  29. I always get overseas visitors asking me where the kangaroos are in Melbourne. They expectitg them to use street crossings and observe the traffic lights obviously. :-)
