Share your world – 26th April 2022

I survived Covid, it took about a month to feel ‘normal’ again. But there are still lingering side effects. We went away for a few days (perhaps you’ve seen the posts?) and then had a quiet Easter and then ANZAC Day at Home. Actually, we pretty much ignore them. I am tired of people trying…

Road Trip – South Australia Pt 2

We left Mt Gambier and drove down to Carpenter Rocks (which is a small town), visited the Cape Banks Lighthouse and a shipwreck, Pisces Star. The road out was pretty much a dirt track, but easily accessible. The sand down to the beach and the wreck was another story and VERY soft and difficult to…
