The Perils of Getting Up Too Early

Normally we never drive early in the day or after mid afternoon because of the risk of hitting a roo on the road. We drive from Melbourne to Esperance, over 3000kms without seeing a single kangaroo. We’ve seen thousands of emus but where oh where are the kangaroos? Is this some kind of record for driving in Australia? Then just when we have to arrive early to secure a spot at a way too popular NationalPark camp ground, out pops a roo and wham. A couple of days later a policeman at a random breath test tells us to get our bent number plate fixed asap or incur a $1000 fine. Poor old Skippy was probably worse off than the number plate but he had disappeared into the scrub never to be seen again.

Our destination: Cape Le Grand Beach
