Yes, there be Kangaroos on Kangaroo Island! Here, just off the Southern coast of Australia, residents attach “roo” bars to the fronts of their vehicles because the kangaroos and wallabies are so numerous!

This guy was lucky, but we passed quite a few by the side of the road that weren’t quite so quick.

K.I. is Australia’s third largest island and we drove to the absolute other end of where we were anchored (about 2 hours away).

Flinders Chase National Park was our destination. It is one of many protected places on the island.

“Remarkable Rocks” were formed 500 million years ago. The granite was exposed by erosion over hundreds of thousands of years and they are still being changed by exposure to the natural elements of wind, rain and salt from the relentless Southern Ocean.

A short drive and a long walk away, still in Flinders Chase, is the approach to spectacular “Admiral’s Arch”.

Seals steal the show away from rock formations – this area is protected in order to provide fur seals a place to feed, breed, haul-out and rest.

Back on board that evening, we saw that the crew had been busy decorating. Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!
