A weekend in June (winter) in the Clare Valley 2016-7
We spent a long weekend in Clare alongside the Riesling Trail... Two of our daughters came too, we
hired 2 of the Riesling Trail cottages, one for us and a larger one for the daughters and husbands.
The weather was wet travelling to Clare, but stayed fine for the weekend so we had a very enjoyable

Winter Weekend in Clare and Burra 2015
This particular weekend we stayed in a B/B on the Riesling Trail... a great spot for walking/riding
as you can see from some of my photos which follow...
Traversing the picturesque Clare Valley wine region, the Riesling Trail is one of the first rail-trails to be developed in South Australia. Developed by the Office for Recreation and Sport and the Clare Valley community,
the trail runs for 27-kilometres along the old Riverton to Spalding railway line.
The trail runs between the towns of Clare and Auburn - approximately two hours drive north of Adelaide. It is well compacted,
making it suitable for recreational walkers, off-road bicycles, wheelchairs and pushers. Named after the grape and wine variety that the region is famous for, the Riesling Trail travels past many
cellar doors and other visitor attractions, making it ideal for those wanting a leisurely walk with a distraction or two!
Kangaroo Island, a coast with the most! 2011
Sea-lions basking on white beaches, koalas dozing in lofty eucalyptus, pelicans soaring over shimmering lagoons..Kangaroo Island is a pristine wilderness. All the photos were taken early Winter. Two cameras were in use, the Canon and the Lumix depending on how far we were walking.
The Lumix photos are easily differentiated in this gallery by the wider border.
Port Broughton, Fisherman's Bay & Port Germein
These 3 beaches are in the northern reaches of the Gulfs of South Australia. We

Mildura and the Riverland towns of South Australia
Mildura is a bit of a favourite spot with us for a week's holiday. The last couple of years we've driven up to Mildura with some old friends and stayed a few days. The photos were taken in the Australian WINTER.
