Field after field of beautiful wildflowers are stunning in the springtime.

    I have a willy wagtail building a nest in my garden - such cute birds, and very territorial. Looks like you had a good time in SA. leyle

    Wildflowers, huge open space, birds and white kangaroos make me want to go there. What about their wine, I like so much - did you visit any winery there?

    Did you make it down to Phillips Island to see the penguins? Australia is a great place with so many different places and topography. Safe travels from travelling Canadians!

    Your cabin by the water looks idyllic--I'd love to see an Ibis. I didn't realize aborigines eat kangaroo until I watched a film on Australia yesterday on the travel channel!

    Rental cars, coastal and island driving, a glass of wine beside the bird list and romantic cottages! This sounds like my kind of trip too! An excellent page! Those Willy Wagtails are common in southern Africa too.
