|Sherry and Sharon, glad you both enjoyed it.
Larry, you would have really liked the gardens. Flying Foxes (Fruit Bats) are fascinating creatures. Unlike bats that get around by echo-location (radar), Flying Foxes use eyesight. But they are really smelly, you notice the roosting colonies from a long way. Their colonies can number up into the millions of individuals. Here's a photo of the airforce using a chopper to scare a colony away from the base.
