|Pleased as punch!|
Last weekend, Justin and I took our rental car to the Yarra Valley. The main purpose of our trip was to visit Healesville Animal Sanctuary, but we also did a lot of driving around the countryside because it is oh-so-pretty in the valley with all the vineyards and mountain scenery around. Luckily, we encountered no wild animals. In particular, there were signs everywhere warning us of wombats crossing the road. Wombats may be small in stature, but they are solidly built like tanks and will most definitely wreak havoc to your vehicle if hit.
In addition, there are signs everywhere with a number to call if you accidentally do hit an animal. Should the unfortunate happen and the scene is safe, you are to wrap the animal in a blanket and wait for the authorities to arrive. The animal is then brought to a place with veterinarians, like the Healesville Animal Sanctuary.
Next time we're out there, I'll take more photos. However, here are some shots (mostly animals) to tide you over until then. xo
