Ever wondered what people would think of a video you made as you  travelled home? I guess I have a better than average daily drive through rolling hills and frost-covered roadside, past black-faced sheep, under huge ancient Eucalypts and along grassy roadside verges. When its foggy, the fog hangs over the dam like cappucino froth and seeps its way into all the hidden curves of the valley. If its sunset and you are headed away from home, the whole sky is pink and the trees are a heavy deep green.

Tonight a grey kangaroo came bounding out of the fog and high beams of oncoming cars and miraculously failed to collide with me. Someone was looking after me because they can do a lot of damage to a car and its inhabitants. I think it just bounded between the cars making it smarter than your average roo who usually bounds straight across the road. Unfortunately, as our drive is also in the country you see a lot of wildlife killed by the side of the road. Wombats, big heavy beasts waddle into the traffic at night. Their eyesight it not good and they don’t get out of the way fast enough. I want ‘Wombat’ road signs on this road because so many have been killed. I’ll have to make a submission to Council again.

If I could make this film you’d see that my words are not even close to containing the beauty of this area and this stunning drive. One day you might drive along it and see for yourselves.
