Kangaroo Island Little Penguins Welcome Werewolfers

Hi, it’s Greenygrey. Thanks to Susie for a great blog yesterday, and creating groupack as a Greenygrey collective noun. It’s funny to think there may be other Greenygreys out there, and up amongst the highest peaks in the world too. Maybe one day we’ll meet again, as we, Green and Grey, were reunited during and after Grey’s epic Oz ramble immortalised in Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps

Yep, you guessed right, it’s time for another thrilling episode of your favourite werewolf travels Australia to the Wizard of Oz theme, with a hint of Alice in Wonderland and Lord of the Rings… and Monty Python’s Life of Brian. Here it is:

46.  KANGAROO ISLAND Royal reception

The dust sandy path led us out to Kangaroo Island. It didn’t seem to be the logical direction, but we had faith in following the path.

Kingscote Little Penguins

We were welcomed by a right regal looking kangaroo called King Scote. He told us we should call him Scoty, and were his guests; so we would want for nothing while on the island.

Scoty introduced us to a colony of little penguins that enjoyed the freedom of the land; he said they didn’t take up much space because they are the smallest penguins in existence. They were very pleasant and playful, and struck up an instant rapport with Bonzo.

Bonzo relished telling them how he’d scored the third goal for the Crows in our epic AusRuIcket game. They said they’d love to learn how to play, so Bonzo started teaching them. 

Time to Ramble

Scoty seemed to be a tad smitten with Elle, so when he offered to show us his realm I declined the offer, and said I’d like to do some solo rambling around the island.

I crossed Little Sahara and the Flinders Chase National Park, before relaxing in the wonderfully colourful and clean Vivonne Bay. I had a nice chat with a couple of pelicans called Viv and Yvonne there, before they left to get a bite to eat.

I fell asleep on the beach.
