Sneaking in a few more ...

... (now that my new photo storage allowance has 'kicked in').

In case you thought that winter in Australia was all blue skies and sunshine - behold...

Yorke Peninsula, South Australia.

Flowering eucalypt.

Grand old homestead, Moonta, Yorke Peninsula, SA.

In beautiful Adelaide city.

The cottage where we stayed in Adelaide.

The reason for our trip to South Australia - the National Hockey Championships.

At Playford Lake in the Adelaide Hills.

'The Cedars', the home of one of our most famous painters, Hans Heysen, at Hahndorf in the Adelaide Hills.

Glenelg, Adelaide.

Langhorne Creek, SA

Not sure if these are poisonous or poisonless, Tanya ..... lol.

Banksia

A tree with 'character' despite having been dead for some years - Port Macdonnell, SA, in the garden of a home once owned by poet, Adam Lindsay Gordon.

Sunset over The Currong, SA. Sadly there was little water in this vast lake a few months ago.

I've enjoyed both your photo albums all at once, as we just got back from a fun weekend.

Your pictures are outstanding---and I especially LOVE that you have a clothesline at home!!

The views of your travels and scenery are beautiful, photographed with an experienced eye, and all your sky views are just magnificent.

This very last sunset is like a golden goblet set on the sea. I'm SO glad you're back!!

Oh my, that golden sunset is postcard perfect. Breathtaking!
The flowering gum reminds me of my childhood. Very nostalgic :) Those flowers are beautiful.
You'll soon be able to sing that song, "I've been everywhere, man..." :)
Thanks for sharing your travels with us through these beautiful photos. I particularly love the one of Richard with the quackers.
That cottage looks so cozy.
Had a good chuckle about the poisonless (maybe) mushrooms. I read about the little books on Tanya's blog. :)
Glad your computer's working again. It's good to have you back :)
