Wetlands, Lighthouse and Dust Storms

Dougal came for a stay last Thursday.  Being flat out for much of last week we didn’t get out much but I did manage to get  them both to the Wetlands for a walk. Still no rain to speak of so there is no change in the water levels. It might not seem like that […]

Lighthouse, Wetlands and Spencer Gulf

Road Trips, Lighthouse, and WaWa thoughts.

For the last ten days or so I have been sick. It was brought home to me in no uncertain terms that I am not invincible and like everyone else, I can get laid down with the Flu. I have not had the Flu for a very long time and since I do eat a […]
