Steven and I are staying at a private home here in Byron Bay. The host family has an apartment attached to their house with it's own entrance, kitchen and bathroom.
Not only is it AWESOMESAUCE, but the family is awesomesauce as well.
We chatted late afternoon yesterday about how Steven and I haven't ever seen a wallaby, roo, or really anything yet.
So the family offered to take us for a little drive into roo country (a big park, really).
"Is that a tree stump in the distance?"
"No, it's moving!"
"It's a kangaroo!"
They never let us got close enough to feed them or anything (after all, this wasn't a zoo. We literally walked around a park). This one here stood in the sunlight all James Bond-like staring at the Canadians approach.
They hopped away once we got too close. It was hilarious! But also marvelous! It's so cool that these animals HOP to get away from things that could possibly hurt them. WONDERFUL IDEA, EVOLUTION!
There it is! That's a roo!
After our Roo Sightings, we walked over to the local golf club and had dinner at The Deck, a nice little eatery.
It was curry night, so we both had a nice curry with rice, yoghurt sauce, crispy chip-like things, and NOT HOMEMADE NA'AN! Oh, sister, I miss you (and your GAH-mazing baking skills) so much.
I ordered chips with aoili (French Fries with flavoured mayo, for all you Canadians) on the side because I'm a Chip-a-holic and gosh-golly-gee these were AMAZING. Are the potatoes here yummier or something?! Mmmm!
Today, we did a big beautiful hike that I'll post about later! The photos are so amazing you'll have to hold onto your socks. Or maybe take them off completely. Or whatever you're into with socks. I accept you. Cool.
