Day 9 DownUnder was spent exploring more of the INCREDIBLE Kangaroo Island, South Australia. I was up early for a stunning sunrise over the Backstairs Passage- a nice hour spent just enjoying the peace and quiet of a beautiful morning on KI.
After breakfast, we met up with Dr. Peggy Rismiller- the world's foremost expert on short-beaked echidnas- and learned how to track an echidna in the wild. It was really interesting to learn a bit about her life as a wildlife professional, and to get even a tiny glimpse into her passion for the echidnas. She absolutely LOVES them, and her excitement and enthusiasm were contagious...
Then we had a bit of a tour around the north shore of Kangaroo Island, including stops at Pennington Beach and Stokes Bay- both BREATHTAKING places.
After all that excitement and photo-taking, we had definitely worked up an appetite, and the TOP BLOKES of Exceptional Kangaroo Island Tours (Craig, Scott, and Ron) set up a delicious lunch for us on a local farm- bush-dining at its finest!
After lunch, it was back to the airport to hop on our CHARTERED PLANE back to Adelaide... I'm telling you, Tourism Australia and the South Australia Tourism Commission did it up RIGHT for our itinerary- A MASSIVE 'CHEERS!!!' to them!
Back in Adelaide, we had a great dinner out at a local pizza place called 'Melt'- DELICIOUS! The Dessert Pizza- chocolate, crushed pistachios, and frangelico cream- annnnd, that's all you really need to know...
Day 9 DownUnder- yet another MASSIVE success! Stay tuned, there's still MORE to come!
