River gum along the Frome River in South Australia's Flinders Ranges

Aussie outback adventure #4 – Mt Serle

Aussie outback adventure #3 – a cultural day

Welcome to Iga Warta – Day 3 full of culture and history  Nangga (pronounced nunga) means hello/welcome in the local Adnyamathanha (pronounced Udna-mat-na) language. We are learning lots of words for plants, animals and birds, as we go on our walks with guides Sharpie, Cliff and Terry.  It’s been very enlightening and educational not to mention interesting. The good news…

Worth a Word Wednesday: Scribbly Gums

 Wordless Wednesday – has now been renamed ‘Worth a Word’ Wednesday simply because I can’t stick to the rules of NO WORDS 🙂 Theses magnificent trees deserve to have some words written about them.  Can you see the scribbles on them?  They are found in the bush near where where my husband grew up in Nowra on the South Coast of…

Forest tracks on a winter's day in Tumbarumba

Worth a Word Wednesday: the tracks of my life

 Wordless Wednesday – winter and the tracks of my life No more ‘jealousy/wish you were here’ shots of beaches from me for the moment, I’m back home into full-on winter mode – it’s wet, grey, cold and just a tad miserable outside. These tracks are throughout the forest at the rear of our property and over the years my husband has…

Bridge at the bottom of the garden

Melbourne Musings on a Monday

A few days away in Melbourne – visiting a National trust historic house and garden, watching the taping of a TV comedy show as part of the live audience, meeting up with blogging friends, walking my sister and her husband to the train station on their way to work, going for a run, shopping, having my car cleaned, night markets,…

A trusty network

The Trust inherent in a ballet production is an amazing thing to see in action.  I can’t remember when I last went to the ballet. Our Bookclub has wanted to go on a significant outing for years and on the weekend we finally made it happen.  Cue much excitement!! We had tickets to see the Australian Ballet perform Giselle at the Civic…
