Week 4 Trekking, Day 2

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

The warmnth of the sun was already making its way into the tent. I lazeily turned over and pulled my bag up over my head. Then I remembered, Today we would hike into Donnelly River Village. Hurry up slow pokes, I am so anxious to hit the trail today. I already fixed oatmeal with blueberries and nuts. Come on, lets get going!

I thought I heard thunder this morning but when I peaked out it was a bunch of Kangaroos (running, hopping) what ever you call it. It sounded just like thunder. Like horses galloping but louder. At the village we will be able to see them up close I think and lots of other wildlife. Don't you just love it? Joan, did you borrow my binoculars? I can't find them,, oh wait, here they are, I will need these on my neck today. Bug spay, sunglasses, lets go ! How long before we get there Ann? Check out some of the things we saw. After viewing it, you will be proud to be a woman and not a roo with a Joey!

We have had a wonderful day shopping, watching God's creatures, and eating. I think I would like to just set here on the porch and look out over skies and see the evening sunset! It is a brilliant one, positively explosive!



Well, the sun has set, the chocolate is gone and the stars are shinning bright. Hard to spot them through all these Karri trees but if you look closely and the wind blows just right, AH, see them? I think I will turn in, got to keep a watchful eye on Joan. She has a possum
it eating out of her hand. No Joan, you can't bring that possum into bed with you! I don't care how cute you think he is! BonBon, hold the door quick, she is trying to smuggle him in here. "Don't make me have to go tell Ann"

Laying in my soft bed, pondering the day, My what a glorious day it has been. I am sure we walked twice as far as need be to get here. We followed those roos everywhere. And that mom and her Joey, So big to still be nursing and in the pouch. I am sure happy I am not a roo,

Sweet Dreams

    Sounds like another good adventure today. I really enjoyed reading about all you saw. I love Kangaroos and little Joeys. . .Thank you for sharing your fun day with us. Possums can be dangerous, I don't like them one bit. Joanie should be careful. Pretty soon she'll want to take one home with her emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Keep enjoying your wonderful Trek!! You must be getting homesick about now. I hope Jerry is okay and holding down your homestead!! emoticon
