Jan 1, 2019 - A walk to the beach

After lunch Tony & Alan decided to get the kayaks out and go out on the lake, so I walked down the edge of the lake following them to the beach. It's quite warm and muggy but the sun is covered with cloud so it's not too bad. The tide was out so I didn't bother going any further than the lake edge. There are hundreds of hermit crabs in the shallows of the lake all busily going about their business....

Dec 29, 2018 - A great catch up

We're having a great couple of days catching up with Heather & Mike at Callala Bay. These lovely Rainbow Lorikeets come to feed in their garden, and they had a couple eating out of their hands. Little Ava was very impressed with her father (Anthony) hand feeding them. Today we went to Greenwell Point for lunch and had a very enjoyable, delicious fish, callamari, chips and salad. This photo is looking across at Greenwell Point from the ocean. The most photographed pelicans anywhere!!!! We walked down to the sea at Culburra Point...

Oct 21, 2011 - Aus - Day 170 - Jervis Bay

Went through the little town of Hampden over a Suspension Bridge, built in 1898, that spans the Kangaroo River and is the town's photogenic focal point. Beautiful bridge with lots of character and charm. We decided to drive down to the coast to Jervis Bay National Park. Translucent turquoise water, breathtakingly beautiful white-sand beaches. Extensive sea grass beds, deep-water cliffs with caves and dolphins are a regular sight. We were not blessed to see any dolphins and the sea was not cooperating, we tried to go snorkeling and failed to...

Feb 20, 2010 - moving on

Sat Feb 13 We left Port Campbell around 10am and headed inland to Ballarat. We arrive d just after noon and went to Sovereign Hill. Sovereign Hill is an old gold mining town, all the old buildings are still here and all the employees are dressed in 1800’s attire, the ultimate pioneer village. The girls got to pan for gold, take a carriage ride, see how the underground gold mining works, and see them pour a bar of gold and got to hold that bar of gold (worth about $120,000). This was an amazing place, its too bad we weren’t there earlier in...

Mar 7, 2006 - Jervis Bay

Aussie Land, March 7, 2006 scripted by Teresa We have been in Jervis Bay, New South Wales, Australia for two days. To get here we drove through the Kangaroo Valley, which did not have any kangaroos but it was a beautiful valley. We stopped to take pictures of "caution Wombat crossings" signs and "caution kangaroo crossings" signs with lots of sneering from David and Matt but Cathie and I thought it was very entertaining especially because we caught our first glimpse of a Kookaburra bird. The next day, we were feeding a bunch of Lorikeets...
