Camping In The Bush

We spent a fun weekend away camping in the bush. Dodging snakes, jellyfish, scorpions, mice, frogs, & even stinging caterpillars. No joke on that either! Which is nothing compared to those naughty little "paddy-Lemons" {as they shall forever and always now be known as..} who like to steal your bananas, wallabies who are nosey enough to sniff your hands, & possums who think being on top of your tent is way cooler then being on the ground. Not to mention wombats who are cute and fuzzy and squeal like crazy when they are insulted, frustrated, or hurt.

All though I have no video or photographic proof of any of this as I was quite preoccupied with a large assortment of things. In fact, I have very few photos of this entire event as my camera was hi-jacked by a certain boy who shall remain nameless but who's birthday is fast approaching..

We're now sporting heaps of fly bites {that'd be me}, sunburn {that'd be Morgan}, permanently dirty feet {that'd be Jayden}, and a flashy new pair of crutches {that'd be Mr S.}. Many memories made, and gobs of fun stories to tell, but for now I have a huge pile of laundry to deal with & a tent that needs to be dried out.. neither of which can happen until this rain lets up!

Wow! Was that kangaroo in your campsite? Are they dangerous?

I just started a blog hop called I Saw it on Vacation. Hopefully it will become a geography resource. It would be great if you would like to grab my button and link-up. Here's the link if you are interested.

Yes, he was in our campsite. He kept stealing bananas and banana peels if they weren't heavily guarded. I suppose if you seriously angered a roo or wallaby {that's a wallaby by the way which is just a smaller roo} then it might punch or kick you, but in general they are peaceful creatures. :)

We have many wildlife parks around the state. Most for the purpose of rehabilitating injured animals, but some animals can't be reintroduced to the wild and spend their days roaming hundreds of acres. You can go to these places and feed the roos and other wildlife. Much fun. :D

I'll have to check out your link-up after we're done with school for the day. ;)
