Okay. We have been to Warrawong before but this time we decided to go for the nocturnal walk and dinner package.

It is Andrew's birthday tomorrow, it was mine nine days ago and it was Andrew's daughter's 25th birthday on the 15th of September. We never know what to get Michelle for birthdays/xmas. Last year we all went to do the "Cheetah" Experience which was fantastic, so this year we thought Warrawong would be a good idea.

There were 5 of us. Andrew, my sister Mae, my brother in law Frank, my stepdaughter Michelle and of course, Meeee.

The morning had given us hail, driving rain and sunshine, so our fingers were crossed that it would at least not rain while we were on our walk.  We arrived at Warrawong at about 5.30pm, ordered our dinner, had a hot drink and then went on our walk which lasted about 90minutes.

We saw kangaroos, wallabies, betongs, bandicoots and possums. Didn't get to see turtles, platypus or koala's though. Luckily although it had rained slightly at the beginning of the walk and then towards the end, it didn't rain too much.  There were lots of the betongs, bandicoots and little wallabies (which all looked so similar that I couldn't tell you which was which), and apparently they had not been having too many out on other nights so we were so lucky. They say that they seem to be out more when it is raining.

When we arrived back at the restaurant, the chef was informed that we were back so we could get our first course. Then on to the second course. All very nice. Just to top off the evening, one of the ladies that worked in the restaurant, went and got out a snake called Bailey. Andrew and Michelle held Bailey and then another couple of ladies got to hold Bailey too.  Everyone was happy except Mae. Mae has a snake phobia.

Well the snake was taken back to it's warm bed and Mae came out of hiding!  Time to go home. A great evening!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We were almost home and we saw someone dressed up as a bear, standing on the side of the road just waving to everyone.
