Floral Friday Foto

Another 116 in 2016 photo - I was walking around my garden (such that it is) and noticed this burst of colour, in an otherwise dreary half dead area.

More catching up with my photos for 116 in 2016

Return to Lake Bonney, South Australia

Hi there, my friend Joy and I had so much fun last year at our PACC weekend away at Lake Bonney, we decided to go back again ...... when it was a bit warmer.

So on Monday, 7th November 2016 we returned - with plans to stay until Thursday.

Here are some pics from our trip

We always stop at Blanchetown for a stretch, coffee and pit-stop - there is always something to photograph there :)

Can I help you?

Furry Ant

Monday night, we had this beautiful sunset

Sunset at Lake Bonney

then on Tuesday we went to Banrock Station Wetlands

Joy at Banrock Station

We came across a lizard (goanna ??) trapped in a wire fence, so we called for the Park Ranger who came and got it out of the fence and took it to the Vet.  Ofcourse, we took a few photos while we were waiting LOL   We didn't venture too close to it, as we didn't want to scare it and hurt it any more than it was already :(  thank goodness for zoom lenses!

Goanna

then for lunch we returned to Lake Bonney had a picnic on the lake edge and watched some school children learn to ski :)

We have take off!

this is my friend Joy getting down low for that perfect shot!
Getting the good shot

Unfortunately, we had to come home a day early as I had an unexpected funeral to attend, but we stopped in at Blanchetown again on the way home.

the kookaburra was still there :)

It did the soul good to get away from it all - thank you Joy, for a great few days away :)

Out and about with my camera

time to catch up with some more 116 in 2016 photos


Australasian Swamphen

Ready to unfurl




Gossamer Wings

My friend Joy and myself went on the Captain Proud River boat cruise - it was a lovely day - the weather was perfect, boat not too crowded, staff were attentive and helpful and all round, it was a very pleasurable experience.  We went for a walk the river bank and came across these pelicans have a bit of a rumble!  It certainly was most interesting to watch - it was like the other pelicans were standing guard so that nobody would interfere.

Fight - Fight - Fight!
