A Message From Katie
We arrived in Sydney at last to be met by my son and granddaughters, Amelie nine and Mia, seven. Then we headed for the Whitsundays and renewed our acquaintance with the giant crocodile. This time we watched him being fed, a chilling experience. His keeper perched on an overhang and dangled chicken pieces on a stout rod well above McCulloch's head (he is named for a chainsaw!). The crocodile didn't move even his eyes as the titbit was lowered. Then there was a horrid roar, he leapt 4 or 5 feet into the air and the chicken was gone.
One night a kangaroo got confused by the restaurant lights and bounded onto Brian's just vacated chair, looked round wildly and headed for the open via four tables, lots of crockery and a good deal of food. The kids were convinced the 'roo' had done it on purpose!
Then there was the boat trip when a turtle surfaced just beside us, looking outraged, the flying foxes coming home to roost each evening, a possum and her baby caught in the headlights, all astonished golden eyes, and the birds, some kind of tiny parrot, nesting within six feet of the kitchen window...
Only another fortnight though, then it's back to my current book, so I must make the most of Amelie and Mia whilst I can.
All best wishes,
