Eagles View, South Australia.

Getting ready for the first big adventure .
Australia, Day Five.
 
Looking Southish from Deb and Ian's.

Today was a sorting out day, getting things ready for our big adventure to the bush and the weather was a tad dodgy so I got a bit done on the Computer but whilst I was sat in the cottage I had the camera ready for anything that appeared near the door.
