Allan found out about the Kangaroo Farm before we left Ontario, his mandate was to get there before it closes for the season Thanksgiving weekend, and take a photo of him petting one. Made it! Love the “use common sense, we all know what 6 feet looks like.”
The entrance person tell us where to find the Sugar Gliders, we don’t even know that they are!
Come early their website advises….
At the entrance, they give you a bag of popcorn to feed. These guys woke up!
From the first time Allan learned of this farm, he wanted to pat a kangaroo. We thought they’d be a lot taller, Allan improvises!!More patting! Roo Pat
Allan is again disappointed, we didn’t see a gator
Allan gets photos with the cuties… He was a little nervous petting her as she was with joey but it did go well.
Interesting fact: All wallabies are marsupials or pouched mammals. Wallaby young are born tiny, helpless, and undeveloped. They immediately crawl into their mothers’ pouches where they continue to develop after birth—usually for a couple of months.

Last stop, exotic birds & Sugar Gliders
Interesting fact: The sugar glider is a small, omnivorous, arboreal, and nocturnal gliding possum belonging to the marsupial infraclass. The common name refers to its predilection for sugary foods such as sap and nectar and its ability to glide through the air, much like a flying squirrel.
As they are nocturnal, the handler keeps him in the blue pouch taking him out just to show and back in he goes.
Today is walk to Lake Country which is closer to us than Kelowna. Kelowna = not walkable.
Kelowna Airport is about 2km from here, it is one of the smallest airports I’ve seen. Should have taken a photo of the railroad track converted to trail, we walked along to get to Lake Country. Did get the fruit trees.
I agree, this isn’t a remarkable day to memorialize, BUT… our destination is Woody’s Pub. What did we find there? This smile tell it all!
