Out and About

We've now had a few interesting outings in our van. Though it's reliability is variable- we've discovered that the battery doesn't always keep charge. Currently we're working out why- it appears that whilst the car is off, the CD player and clock are still on using power. Also we think the remote key may be part of the problem- both it, and the CD player were added later.

Otherwise we've gotten down to Victor Harbour, which was great...we walked across and then took the horse tram back. It was a bit of a windy day, and it would be great to go back in time to see the fairy penguins one night.

Then last weekend Willow went to Burra with some friends, so the rest of us went off through the hills, with our plan to get to Birdwood, as a final destination. We went via Lobethal, and found Camelot on the way.

And I have now seen my first giant thing in Australia- we went past the giant rocking horse at Gumeracha.

And just to finish off....this was a local trip, we went to the Himeji Garden as part of our study in Japan.

It was very beautiful and peaceful.
