Regular readers may detect a theme here! I have been away with the Trust this weekend. We went down the Fleurieu Peninsula and stayed in a very nice place for a couple of days to work out our directions for the next little while. I was as ever restored by being in nature, and was very happy to find more kangaroos to enjoy, after my weekend in the Flinders a couple of weeks ago. It was also really enjoyable to spend some time with my fellow trustees – they are a great bunch!
Here are some snaps of the weekend (and with special thanks to Laurie for some of the nicest ones below) (click on photos to enlarge. If you don’t it will be hard to see the kangas…).
The Trustees – me, Laurie, Maggie, Angela and Cathy, taken with Laurie’s camera on a timer, Maggie pressing the button
Pebbles and rocks (from Laurie)

Old and new flags at the marina (it’s a windy place!) (thanks Laurie)

Lilies in the creek – they were everywhere and in flower
There is a kangaroo in this picture, taken early on Saturday morning. Can you see it?
The hills were very steep
Wattle is coming out later than the plants in the Flinders Ranges a couple of weeks ago – not surprising, it being much cooler here
Beautiful casuarina trees moving in the wind
I think a fig tree coming into leaf
We went for a walk on Saturday afternoon, threatening rain

The golfing kanga bounded right by me – this photo gives a hint of it
