tuesday 16 sept

A weekend in the Fleurieu Peninsula saw us walking along the causeway to Granite Island. No whales to be seen, but gorgeous scenery.

We went to an animal farm and made friends with kangaroos, including some with joeys, and also got to stroke adorable koalas.

Bizarre watching the rugby at a pub where there was only one other patron watching the game, and he was English. No-one else cared who won (did they know a game was even on?), everyone was watching the AFL.

Sunday we went on a cruise on the Coorong, where Storm Boy was filmed. Amazing scenery, awesome spot, prime real estate for the Aboriginal people who lived there for thousands of years with sea on one side, river on the other, and fresh water literally in the sand hills that you can dig a small hole for and drink. Quite amazing.

Home Sunday night to a dinner of Coorong Mullet purchased from the Island. Yum!

Great to hear you are all having a great time. Thinking of you all today – Elizabeth said you were spending some time at Uluru – amazing place. Missing you and your smiles.
