Silent Guests

with 8 comments

As I sat working on my computer I looked up to see that some quiet visitors had arrived and were watching me. This mother and her joey took off when I took a step towards them but at least I caught them on camera before they left.


Here at Halls Gap I am basking in the freedom my new state of the art communication system provides. My hosts are amazed that I can pick up a reception and use my laptop so freely. Normally you have to march up on top of the nearest rise to pick up a reception.

Here at Wartook I am staying in a region which was once a vast lake. After a ten year drought this is a bit hard to believe. Everything is parched and dry but some rain has bought signs of life to the ground again.

Do you think this mother and her babe are equally interested in what I am doing?

  3. Heather, what’s a joey? Is that a baby? Once again, you capture photos (except for the kangaroo) that could easily be Northern California in the wine country. Genece

  8. Oh, Heather, this looks like a beautiful place to get away from it all. So peaceful. You, the mountains, the birds, and the wildlife. What could be better?
