Trips, Walks, Writing

We had another trip to Victoria a few months ago and spent time in the gorgeous wine growing area
 

These pictures were taken in and near Nagambie.

There was a visit from daughter and grandsons in September and we had some outings while they were here. The first was to Monarto zoo just outside Adelaide. Lots of animals and you get driven around in buses so a bit like going on safari, sort of.

Giraffe





Cheetas



Lion



And, a Tasmanian Devil


 

 Then we went to Victor Harbor, a touristy town on the Fleurieu Peninsula



and took the horse drawn tram to Granite Island



Sea, rocks and cormorants

there was a blue tongue lizard hiding in the grass



a rather surreal image of the shallow sea bottom taken from the bridge


 
It was a great week with them and hopefully there will be lots more visits.

These pictures have been taken over several weeks of our spring walks in the park

and then later with baby



pretty butterflies

 



and finally, son’s tripod dog who joins us these days

 

On the writing front, there has been a small fic for the

[community profile] lewis_challenge , another episode in the Victorian Lewis and Hathaway vampire world and their attempts to catch up with the elusive Dracula. I’ve quite enjoyed creating this world and might carry on with it for another fic next year.

So that's me up till now. This entry was originally posted at https://margaret-r.dreamwidth.org/44679.html. Please comment there using OpenID.
