This is the next instalment of my Special Moments, Magic Memories series for the 2022 A to Z Blog Challenge.
Kangaroo Island bewitches us
Peaceful beaches with snow white sand.
Pelicans, gannets and oyster catchers
Outnumber human visitors.
We revel in our solitary exuberance.
Strange shaped rock formations
And fierce promontories
Protected by retired lighthouses.
A beach at first glance
Looking like a sea lion graveyard
Is a haven for relaxation, noisy and smelly
Mothers, babies, arguing adults.
Wineries and New Age gift shops
Cafes with treats and views.
Aussie tree-blossoms flavour honey
Produced by pure Ligurian bees.
The island’s name belied
Nary a roo, wallaby or koala do we see.
An “overseas” holiday closer to home
No visa, insurance or passport sounds appealing.
