Sitting on the Fence .......





A lovely rainbow Bee-Eater looking  for a tasty morsel for his Breakfast
This is the first time I've seen one of these sweet little birds.

They are just returning to the Southern states of Australia
following their Winter migration
to warmer climes

Royal Adelaide Hospital ......



Our new hospital - built amid much controversy
some people wanted to stay with the old
other felt a new hospital was the way to go.

Waitpinga Beach ......



~ Waitpinga Beach  Encounter Bay   South Australia ~

A  pretty sight but wild treacherous waters and strong rips
remain a constant reminder of the many lives 
 lost along this rugged coast

Definitely best left to the expert surfers

Nora Creina .....


~  Nora Creina Bay  ~

 Blue skies melding into an even bluer Southern Ocean
along the beautiful but rugged  "Limestone Coast"

If you went south from here you would need to go 7,000km before
reaching Antartica - A very long way to swim !!
This area was notorious for ship wrecks in the early days
of South Australia's history
