  13. Q has been 'quite' a challenge but, once again, the posters have been very creative. I'll start my contribution with pictures of Quokkas. These cute little creatures are sometimes called Scrub Wallabies because they hop around but they are not related. Quokkas are only found on Rottnest Island which is situated off the coast of Fremantle, Western Australia. We took the ferry across and had a wonderful day there and were very lucky to see some Quokkas because they are generally nocturnal animals. Rottnest Island

We were on Costa NeoRomantica and the ship's protection was to position clothes mannequins dressed as soldiers and holding fire hoses at strategic places around the ship.. Things were a bit better organised a few years later when we had armed mercenaries on board and protective barbed wire around the decks....
