Two Days Until Australia


In two days, E and I drop our dachshund at my mom's house and hop a plane for Australia. We're spending three weeks in a small town south of Perth called Mandurah. Her uncle has a vacation house on the bay there, which he has graciously offered to let us stay in as a wedding gift.

While there, I'm going to have a chance to meet her extended family. Her parents met and grew up in Perth, although they haven't lived there in years.

We're heading out to the outback for a couple of days to spend some time on a real working sheep farm, owned by an old friend of the family. E was there several years back, and all she remembers of it was riding motorcycles around, chasing kangaroos. I can't wait.

Anyhow, this is mostly a filler post - I'm sure there will be more to write about soon. The pic here is a shot from our trip to Sydney a couple years ago, on the Hawkesbury River - we're not going near there this time. And no, the sky wasn't really that color, the effect was a weird filter setting on the camera.
