Adelaide, Australia

I have to admit that I am not a city girl, and when possible try to stay out of them but had to reconsider this with Adelaide, even though I have to admit I didn't venture far into the shopping side of it.
It is a beautiful city and we enjoyed our 2 days here.   I recommend a boat ride along the Torrens. 

We saw this baby koala while visiting a Waterfall not far from Adelaide city.

Flowers, plants and weeds.

I wanted to call this post "things we often don't notice".  A few of this images are of weeds that cover the Australian fields.  We walked over them.trampled them, hardly noticed them.  It wasn't until I made closeup pictures of them that I saw how unique some of them really were.  I don't know any of their names, but who cares.. they are a part of Australians nature :)

I hope you enjoy these fotos as much as I enjoyed taking them. 

Salvation Jane also called the Paterson's curse.

Flinders Ranges

When I started to sort out the pictures for our Gorge drives, I realised that they don't do Flinders Ranges justice.  You need to see it to realise the hidden beauties of this place.  Not only the scenery but also Australias wildlife.  Whereever I looked there was something to take photo off.. animals, flowers, insects etc.

I will let the pictures speak for themselves. I haven't had a chance to find out the names of some of the insects, so anyone reading this blog know any of them... please share :)

Emu family
Red footed rock wallaby
Shingled lizard or as the Aussies call them, sleepy lizard
Would love to know what this one is called.  If I hadn't seen it jump
I would have seen it at all.
