See Ya’s Australia, G’day Tassie

We have left the mainland Australia for Van Diemen’s Land…actually, they began calling the island Tasmania in the 1850’s.  As most of you probably know the British originally used Australia as a gigantic prison, shipping their criminals off to the remote island far, far away.  Consequently, most of Australia’s major cities were established by criminals […]

Happy Thanksgiving

Just because nobody in Australia celebrates Thanksgiving, and just because Turkey is nearly impossible to find, and even though it costs 10 times as much doesn’t mean we didn’t have a thanksgiving. We managed to whip up a pretty nice good ol’ American turkey feast with all the fixins’ and called about everyone we could in […]

Clown Boy is missing in the Alps! yeah.

On a last minute coin flip we decided to see what the mountains could hold for us in Australia.  And though the Alps, with their almost complete lack of pine trees and granite peaks, did NOT remind us of home it was beautiful none-the-less.   Of course, you wouldn’t think driving through ski resort towns in […]

The Shipwreck Coast

The Great Ocean Road hugs the southern coastline and part of the Bass Strait.  As we stood on the edge of the continent we admired the stunning cliffs of lime stone cut by millenia of savage seas we could easily understand why these rocky shallows coupled with gale force winds were able to claim 800 ships […]

Clearwater & Calsalite

A mini heat wave hit the south coast this week, and we’re doing our part to keep cool.  in the past couple days, we’ve swam in the Ocean, a lake, a pond and a mini “dead sea” and even went down into the earth…anything to keep cool. We snorkeled in the clearest water I’ve ever […]

Penguins!

Victor Harbor reminds me of some of the peaceful coastal towns of Northern California and Oregon coast line. The down town is full of lovely little shops and places of interest to learn more about the area and wildlife. Since Victor Harbor is blessed with peaceful shallow warm waters the Right Whales frequent it every […]
