Natural formation in the sand, a good place for healing

friendly kangaroos are good for healing

If they scratch, and you scratch for them, they love it. By the time I tried it, my camera battery was dead

Cori, your pictures are so beautiful!!! The kangaroos are GREAT, and how wonderful to have the dolphin so close. Cute little gecko… but that jelly fish is huge :eek: ! I've head some scary stories about Australian jelly fish, but who knows if they're true.

I didn't realize you were down in Australia again. I've not been on the board much, and hadn't checked "beyond the Sierra Nevada” for a while. I had wondered about you, and how your shoulder was doing…. looks like you found the perfect place for some “Rest & Recuperation”. What an amazing setting!
