Playing with Kangaroos

The kangaroos in Australia are as common as deer are here though the roos are not as timid.  This place was near Adelaide in South Australia and was a refuge for kangaroos.  The area was very large and the public was only allowed in a small area.  If the kangaroos did not wan to socialize they just hopped off.

Petting a Joey was quite the experience.  These are all scanned from 35mm negatives.

Australian Golf Hazards

I golfed here 2 or 3 times a year.  Some times it required shooing the kangaroos off the greens with a putter.  They were rather friendly but they can cause bodily damage so caution was always in the back of your mind.  It really, in hindsight, was very surreal.
