OK - so now I'm confused! (are you Canada or Australia!)

Having said that I've just booked a holiday to South Australia - so I'm glad as well.

Great capture Karen. Waitpinga is a good spot for beach fishing (salmon trout especially!). Thanks for bringing back some happy memories. Thanks for visiting my blog too.

Hi there - we are off to Kangaroo Island. Went there 10 years ago - seems like a good idea to go back.

What a gorgeous shoreline with the white foamily waves coming in. It looks so quiet and peaceful...the perfect spot to go with your chair, your camera, and a good book. Gorgeous. genie
