|Down at the Flinders Pier|
|Un-squished roadside attraction|
Kangaroos everywhere. The hot dry weather is drawing them to the grass along the road reserves. A particularly large old fella came a cropper (was fatally injured by car) just outside Dad's gate. We have watched (and smelt) its decomposition through hot weather, insects and critters every time we pull out of the drive. Sean has been amazed at just how little time a 90+ kg kangaroo takes to decompose, though. Seven days after the end of its hopping days, there is very little left of the carcass besides bones, claws and a little bit of hide.
New Year's Eve was spent on the beach. First the Back Beach then the Pier. Half the town (cousins, old friends) was jumping off into the cool water. Great entertainment in watching a black jeep disappear beneath the waves up to his doors as he tried to tow out his boat! Beers on the beach then fish and chips. Fabulous end to 2015.
