I have been inspired by Cynthia's romantic story on wild mustangs on Beach Coast Style, now we may not have wild horses on our local beaches but we do have wild kangaroos that live on our golf course! There are several hundred, so golfers and kangaroos alike share the course and our little beach town has become famous for it. The golf course overlooks the ocean and we overlook the golf course. The kangaroos often stray in search of 'better restaurants' and as we have the greenest grass in town one of the big males (nicknamed Rocky) became our best customer! Only problem was after a year of nightly visits he had almost destroyed the lawn so we sent him on his way! I laugh when I wash the dishes and see a kangaroo hopping down the street or bump into one on my morning jogs. You see I'm a city girl and having a kangaroo in my backyard is a total novelty!
PS. yes they do get hit by golf balls...regularly!
