A lazy Sunday at Woody Head, New South Wales, Australia

It was another stunning, but quiet day at Woody Head. Everything seems to move on slo-mo, it was a Sunday after all. Almost no wind on an un-swelled ocean meant that even the fish seem to have a rest. Nothing hit my lines, which I didn’t mind. It is just nice being out there watching turtles and dolphins cruising by.

Back on land, a few groups of people enjoyed a BBQ, as I sat by the beach with a coffee.

It wasn’t long until a mob of kangaroos moved in.

A few mothers had their tiny offspring in their pouch as they were grazing along.

Some jillies and joeys grazed close together, even though the joeys were too big to crouch in the pouch. Mom is most likely developing the next generation. Even the normally more active youngsters weren’t up to much mischief.

Slowly moving on from grassy patch to the next. It looks really cool when the tail lifts the whole body up.

I guess this is where the name ‘Kangaroo Jacks’ for heavy-duty car jacks originates from. I always have one handy.

Another youngster couldn’t even be bothered to get up. Looking pretty cool though.

A bit further on, I noticed a doe with two long legs sticking out of her pouch.

This can’t be comfortable for either side. Mom needed a rest, hopping with all that extra weight took its toll.

She rolled on the grass thinking ‘ it is Sunday after all’! A nice little stretch here and there is most welcoming.
