Sunday 19th September 2010 – My friend that I'm staying with and I managed to have a day out together today. We went to a place called The Homestead and walked around the grounds. In the bush we could see a "mob" of kangaroos so set off in pursuit. We managed to get quite close and there was one giant buck who kept a watchful eye on us while his companions bounced away. As they all bounced off, we changed our direction and started walking away. Then, out of the corner of my eye, I saw a giant buck had come after us and was standing up on his hind legs watching us just about 10 feet away. For a moment I thought he was going to charge us but as we hastened our speed he bounced off in the opposite direction. Bit of a scary moment though!
After lunch we went to meet one of my friend's friends, who, apart from playing on of Paul Robinson's wives on Neighbours, is now heavily involved with animal welfare. They have a houseful of cats, dogs, ducks and chooks and she has a friend who runs an animal shelter. She offered to take me there so hopefully I’ll be able to take her up on her offer next week sometime.
