Wallabies on the Isle of Wight.

Gary and I went to the Isle of Wight for my birthday treat. It’s an extremely nice place to visit especially when, like us, you’re lucky with the weather. We stayed in a lovely hotel and both Gary and I were surprised by how many attractions there were. We saw five in three days and trust me; we only scratched the surface.

We went to a monkey and owl haven, Osborne House and Carisbrooke castle, a sea life/aquatic centre and a donkey sanctuary. The wallabies were at the sealife/aquatic centre, though what they were doing there was never explained!

But they are the cutest little things! I wanted to pick one up and take it home! They are so soft and fluffy as well as being incredibly tame. You can stroke them and pet them and they will take food out of your hand. They are so gentle and when they eat out of your hand there is no tooth action, they take the food with their little soft lips. They are just so sweet, it is incredibly tempted to pinch one! Not that I would really because it would be irresponsible and probably extremely bad for the poor little things who undoubtedly need specialised care. But it doesn’t stop me from loving them!
