Some photos from my weekend

Here's something different for a change. I love nature and hiking and animals, which I think would surprise a lot of people who know me! We went to a rainforest/national park over the Easter break, and here are some photos I took. I just have to say that this kangaroo in the first picture was the awesomest kangaroo I have ever seen. He was standing by the side of the road, and when we drove past, he continued to stand there munching his grass. He wasn't worried at all. Awesome :)

Wow, blogger really has a way of ruining all my photos! Anyway, a quick story about the parrots. I love birds, and it is my dream to own a parrot someday! When we went to feed these wild birds, this red & green parrot (King Parrot) was the only one of his type that we saw. For some reason, he really liked me, even though there were a lot of people there with food for the birds. A foreign tourist came over to me after a while and said "Can I have that?" and pointed to the parrot. I thought it was a bit rude (I wasn't monopolising the parrot or anything - it wasn't my fault that he liked me!), but I encouraged the parrot to go to this guy. Anyway, a couple of minutes later he flew back to me again. Heh.


  1. It looks like you had a wonderful day out. I love going hiking and getting out into nature as well, those parrots are fab.

  2. It really was a nice break, and it always feels so refreshing to get out of the city for a while. We do have some great animals here :)

  3. The nature is so beautiful and the animals are super cute! The parrots colours are so gorgeous!
