w e d n e s d a y... and pretty birds



I have a ton -- a TON! --of photos to go through dating back from last summer.  These ones here were from our trip to Australia over Christmas last year.  We went to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary (Brisbane) and it was one of the highlights of the trip.  Especially for our kids. 

Apart from koalas, which we could pet and cuddle (under supervision), we also got up close and personal with kangaroos and other wildlife in a natural setting.  

This was my second visit to the sanctuary and I remembered that the last time I was there, an emu chased me around!  Although the ones this visit seemed to be less aggressive, I made sure to steer clear of them.  I was perfectly fine hanging out with these little pretty birds instead!

I saw the flash of colour and thought 'I know those birds!'. Ha! I drove a friend fro Europe around the countryside and she kept commenting on all the birds - we don't even notice them. Yet in Europe I noticed how the birds sing - ours squawk and screeech, not twitter melodically. (kind of like us, I guess ;)

I've only ever been to Australia once in 1992 and we visited that sanctuary I think, I didnt want to hold one of the koalas because it's claws looked sharp lol. Now I'd do it in a flash.
