Hi Karen,

Thanks for visiting, how far is Lake Huron from Windsor? I used to study there.

We now have both digital and satelite. My husband says some channels from overseas can't be transmitted by digital. May be we are too far away in the middle of the Pacific ocean.

Wow - this really is a spectacular shot!

Stewart M said...

Hi there - that's a great shot.

Have you been to the Great Ocean Road - sounds as if you may have.

We took the inland road this time - during the school holidays the road itself can become a bit of a trial! We have explored the GOR in the past - before children! - so I think it's time for another visit - but we'll wait for the school term to start!

Cheers - SM
