Mom and Dad Visit

 At an olive grove close to where we live.
 Islwyn had absolutely no fear of the ocean.  He, Dad and I had fun swimming in the big waves.
 Our own private beach....
 Amund unleashing his "sand power."

 The view from our cottage.  Nothing between us and Antarctica except the ocean.

 Last day.

Islwyn has taken over photography duties from me lately.  Here is a collection of his recent photos.
Some friends invited us out to their camp one night and they had all kinds of fun things to ride around on.

Melbourne and Installation

We spent last weekend in Melbourne.  I took the kids to Fitzroy Gardens to tour Captain Cook's Cottage.  There is Captain Cook in the background.

 We also walked around a lake in Melbourne.  We got to see some interesting birds and flowers.
 Jonathan was installed on Sunday. 

 Elijah and I looking on.

A day in the Grampians

We went for a drive to the Grampians today.  We are so fortunate to live so close to such a beautiful place. 

And took a walk to view Broken Waterfall (in the background)

hmmm a hollowed out tree

On the way home we saw our first wallaby in the wild!  It stopped and looked at us for a minute.

We made it to Australia!  This is the view out our living room window.  Those are pelicans!  We are right in town so we can walk to all the services as well.  We love it so far.

Elijah taking a walk on the bike/footpath that goes by our house and runs along the river.

Amund taking a break from the walk.
