Delicious doughnuts in Adelaide and the nicest vendor πŸ™‚ We’ll be back! I’m on the bus heading back to Victoria. A window seat so lots to see . . .

Going Nowhere


This vehicle isn’t going anywhere just now but, fortunately, no such dramas on the bus on my trip to Adelaide πŸ™‚ I wanted to spend the weekend with my daughter and her partner but didn’t feel like another long drive. Flights were expensive, perhaps due to the cricket test currently being held in Adelaide so I decided to take the bus. A new experience to write about! Lots of great story ideas formed as I sat surrounded by snorers and a very interesting bunch of fellow travellers so I’m sure I’ll be penning a story set on a bus very soon. I might include a flat tyre . . .

The Apple Isle


This one is for Philomena and all the other Tasmanian readers πŸ™‚

High on our bucket/to-do list is a trip to Tasmanian via the Spirit of Tasmania although it’s still a little way off!

Here she is, docked at Station Pier, Port Melbourne πŸ™‚

Tree Trunks


Today’s prompt…

These magnificent tree trunks are typical of many I saw along the way on my recent visit to South Australia πŸ™‚

Pink Lake

Today’s prompt…

Pink Lake, a salt lake near Dimboola. Some days it is even pinker and apparently glorious at sunset. I hope I’m travelling through at that time one day! The parking bay has been recently renovated and it’s a great place to stop and rest.

Trusty Travel Mug

Today’s prompt…

Where would a long trip be without it?

Home again and a little tired! I stopped several times along the way to stretch my legs but those last 200kms were a struggle. A great trip andΒ a nice pile of mail waiting . . . thank you for the submissions and competition entries πŸ™‚

Jasper and April gave me a rather sleepy, oh-you’re-home welcome (clearly too well looked after while I was gone!) but Bailey was much more enthusiastic. Usually, it’s the felines who fix you with that well-if-you-go-and-leave-me-I’ll-be-aloof look but I’m sure the dogs will change their tune come breakfast time!



Today’s prompt…

Every year on our wedding anniversay, Rod and I travel back to Echuca/Moama (the scene of the crime). Our home is only 100 kilometres from the border and we had a great day touring the area πŸ™‚
