Marooned on a Tropical Island, and Wombat Snozz!

Look at that tummy! LOOK AT IT! EEEEEEE! LITTLE FEET IN THE AIR! EEEEE!

This is kind of awesome, or at least, it will have been awesome…

 

I am now officially trapped on a tropical island. The wind is so bad that the ferries are no longer running.  It’s supposed to get worse tomorrow.

 

Now, as tropical islands go, this one is hardly a desert. The worst thing I can say about it is that they’re out of regular-style Pringles and also the coffee drink I like. Fortunately, we still have lots of tea. If the tea runs out, we may have a problem.

 

Still, tropical island it is, and stuck here I am.  Adventure!

 

Because the wind is blowing so hard, a palm tree fell over and crushed the Sydney skyline near the Sydney Opera House on the mini-golf course. The statue of Ned Kelly appears to be all right, though.

 

Since I don’t have a picture of Ned yet, I’ll share this one: the most snozzed-out wombat I have ever been privileged to see. I never hoped to see a wombat’s belly, but this guy was having a lovely nap on a hot day and giving us the full display. I wanted so very much to rub it, damn the glass at the zoo. We never did see the face, just the tummy. Still, I’ve seen wombat faces before, but never a wombat’s fuzzy underside. A rare treat indeed!
