How much can a koala bear?

We just had a long weekend visiting my dad. The boys love visiting Poppie, there's always lots of fun and the kind of spoiling that one expects from a grandparent to his grandchildren. 
There are also lots of discussions and important questions, such as why? And sometimes why? And often why?
Can you tell we're at the why stage?
On Saturday we went on an adventure to Raymond Island - a quick ferry ride over and then we started on the koala walk. Both Dad and I were a bit skeptical about how many koalas we would see. It turned out our skepticism was being watched by not one, but two koalas. Not that they were paying that much attention, drunken sloths!
Another 25 metres of walking and we saw this little chap scrounging around for ants. 
Harvey was very impressed. Can you imagine how many times he asked 'why' as I explained what we were looking at?
The walk is about 1.2kms and we saw over 15 koalas.
Make that 16 :-)
After the days adventures I tucked the boys into bed (after resettling Lachy several times, he isn't such a fan of that whole sleeping thing), and started on a little knitting project.
I watched 'Land Girls' on Iview, messed up the rib band twice but made some progress. Eventually it should be a jumper for Lachy. I'm using Bendigo Woollen Mills cotton in this lovely blue with a couple of pale blue stripes. Better get back to it or it'll never get finished.

  1. I have never been to Raymond Island but friends of ours have a house there that they stay in for holidays. The jumper is looking nice in the cotton.
