Cape Hillsborough and kangaroos

Isn't this little joey cute? She was rescued and taken to a wildlife carer after her mother was killed on the road. She is about four months old and is still given a bottle six times a day, but has now started eating a little bit of apple and some grass as well. The carer will release her back into the wild when she is independent - quite a while to go yet.

This picture was taken by a friend of mine who kept trying to get further away from the kangaroo to get a better focus. Each step backwards that Veronique took, the roo just took another step forward! A group of them live at Cape Hillsborough - the third photo - and they are a big tourist attraction.

This beautiful beach is half an hour's drive to the north of the city and is a wonderful place to relax. This was the favourite beach for our boys to visit when they were little, we still go there whenever we have visitors. Somehow we never seem to have time to be a tourist when we are just on our own.
I have resorted to Bill's laptop to post this, once more I can't get in through my computer, the gremlins are really in there this time!! Bill is talking about a new computer for him and I will get his old one -yet another steep learning curve coming up. I am trying to learn how to use a mobile phone, having finally succumbed to buying one. Seems to me that all the manuals assume you already know half the procedures before you start, and they write the rest in so much jargon I haven't a clue what they are talking about. Of course the phone has dozens of applications I will never use. Why does any modern appliance have to be so complicated? I am sure nobody uses everything which is on their phone/TV/DVD/computer/whatever.
That is quite enough on this small keyboard.
