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.
Licking her paws to keep her cool.
Little Joey wasn’t comfortable with all this at all and came out to see what’s going on.
How cute is this one? Maybe that was what Jilly tried to achieve.
Even though at a fair size, he wasn’t quite sure about his surroundings.
He desperately tried to slip into the safety of the pouch, but mom had none off that.
‘Go out and do what other joeys do’. What’s a little kangaroo to do?
‘There are some strange creatures here, mom.’ ‘Mom?’ ‘Please?’
A quick scratch is always a good start.
If it helps, we both have a look for danger.
Nothing here, anything over there?
This one looks a bit scary with that thing in his hands. Oh look, Aunty Jilly is over there!
‘Wheeee’, off we go.
Ha ha, this one got a bit jump happy over the paddock.
Look at me mom, look at me!
Mom didn’t seem overly impressed by joey’s moves.
The other family members were to busy grazing as well.
The rest of the mob enjoyed a tranquil sunset dinner by the beach.
A perfect end for a lazy Sunday. Just funtastic.
