I’d forgotten what a wacky wordplay voyage it was for the Werewolf of Ozzers up the Oz east coast, and there’s more trailblazing Tasman Sea tomfoolery in this episode.
Hi, it’s Greenygrey, with another thrilling episode of Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps; updated and improved since yesterday!
While it has been pretty plain sailing since Dolphin Bay, this episode sees trouble torpedo the travel quackers quartet’s quest… in the shape of that most Australian of flying weapons: a boomerang.
Yes folks, as an hour-long episode of the most iconic of British soap-operas starts, it’s the start of the Werewolf of Oz Boomerang Beach trilogy, with Coronation Street making a guest appearance.
Hold on to your cork hats, and prepare for lift-off:
123. Corrie Soap before Boomerang Dashes Green Hope
Being in the sea didn’t mean we missed out on seeing land animals. Why, while passing Wommara Avenue we saw a wombat hitch-hiking to the Masai Mara; and on Kalaroo Road we saw a kangaroo either side of LA.
We dried off under the whopper wind at the Wind Woppa Reserve.
Boomerang Wastes the Green Day
Feeling refreshed, we ate up the nautical miles at a good rate of knots in the afternoon, and a few hours later reached Boomerang Beach.
That’s when the day started going downhill; or to be more accurate, around and around.
Because once we stepped onto the beach we were thrown up into the air, and spun around at great speed over Elizabeth Beach and The Lakes Way.
I thought, at least we’re heading north, maybe it’s a stroke of good fortune. I saw Green Point ahead, and hoped it might be a sign: maybe we’ll land on a nice patch of green when we reach it.
However, I hadn’t taken the Boomerang part of the beach’s name into consideration. The next moment, the return movement seemed to kick in over the Booti Booti National Park, and we just about reached Green Point before being spun south again.
We gathered pace on the southerly downhill, and before we had time to draw our breaths, we were descending to Boomerang Beach. I hoped the nightmare might end when we returned to the beach, but as soon as we neared the ground we were thrown back into the air for another circuit!
