Kangaroo Island Revisited – Getting there.   Leave a comment

After visiting Kangaroo Island last September – we knew it would not be long before we were back.

On Saturday the 11th of May – the alarm went off at 4.15 – time to get up get dressed for the 4.30 Taxi to Brisbane airport.

A bit cool but not too bad and before long we were on the plane.

A glorious view out the window on the flight to Adelaide.

Uneventful and fast trip  – possibility because  I snoozed a fair portion of it.

Into Adelaide – and on time for our transfer with Rex airlines across to Kangaroo Island

Weather forecast not great – but luckily not raining as we got on the plane and patches of Blue sky on our flight across.

Landing safely at Kingscote Airport – time to pick up the Hire Car – went with Budget – unhelpful and unfriendly staff – would not use them again.

Off to Kingscote for some supplies from the IGA to get us through the few days we will be on the Island,  and lunch at the Aurora Hotel ( fabulous meal) – watching what we thought was a lonely New Zealand Fur Seal  playing in the bay out the front while we ate.

After lunch we went for a walk with camera – here we found the Seal was not alone.

They were quite  placid – we still did exercise caution when we were close to them – and this is as close as we got – (my partner Tammy getting one of her shots)

Lots of birds at Kingscote too

After this we headed off to our accommodation – and that will be a post for another day.
