Those are wild roos? Won't they rip your face off or something?

Spectacular place.

Ute said...

XL > These have been hand feed (not recommended) so are tolerant of humans. But not of being chased mercilessly by a 7, 5, 4 and 3 year old into a corner. Their MO is to disembowel or drown.

UTE > Thanks. Love Skip too, goes well with a strong red and crisp veggies. That's my beast. I'll do a post on it soon.

I just lol at your Beer Damper recipe...

and oh! Is that an inch ant? i hate those fuckers. Hurt like a mofo if they bite ya.

unique_stephen said...

Yeah, they are inch and a bit long bull ants - I think these are Myrmecia gulosa. The biggest of the big, aggressive jumping bastards.

Jen said...

I've been there! Delightful part of the world!

Did you walk around the headlands?

Mercury said...

lovely scenery!! almost like SA. VERY similar indeed, only we dont have those roos.. we have other things though.. :)

Ms Smack said...

oh gorgeous!!! Love these photos!

Jen said...

Yeah, we did the walking thing. We were there one particularly hot and humid January and were treated to one of the best storms I've ever seen. On the horizon, thunder, lightning, wind, the whole bit. Fucking awesome night, that one.

Welcome Mercury. I have a long standing fantasy to travel SA, Africa in general.
Mind tho' that this friendship will be put on hold during the rugby.

Smack > 'tis nice. We are spoiled here arn't we :-)

Jen > There is a lot of sky visible from those headlands I can imagine

Mercury said...

Rugby.. Yes, The World Cup, Beating The Lions, The Tri Nations, The Mandela Trophy, beating The All Blacks.. all highlights.. :) Bokke on top. :)
We are now on the way to Europe on tour.. Hoping for a clean sweep.

I hosted the English Rugby management team when they were in Durban.. Would be my pleasure to host you if you visited.

It seems Terry Pratchett wasn't entirely accurate in his portrayal of Australia. Odd.

In other news, I've never been much of a nature buff but... omg want. Seriously, nature has no right to be this pretty.
