G'Day Mates - we are back and we had so much fun and visited sooooo many places. Mom as usual went snap happy with the flashy beast so we are going to have to split our adventure into a couple of parts. First we went to visit Aunty Kris in South Australia and she even had a doggie door in the door just for us! We saw the Flinders Ranges and the funniest little towns which look pretty much like they did 100 years ago! We also saw the BIGGEST ever chickens just grazing around amongst the sheep - Mom says they are called Emu's - but we were thinking one of those on thanksgiving would feed a whole neighborhood!!! Aunty Kris lives right near the sea so we got to run on the beach (being careful not to get wet of coarse) and chase the seagulls. Then we went on a train called "The Ghan" it runs from Darwin to Adelaide and that takes 3 days! We just got it from Aunty Kris's home to Adelaide and it only took 5 hours but it was so cool! Adelaide is called the city of churches and gardens and is so beautiful. We LOVED all the gardens especially the ones surrounding the zoo and the botanic garden was just pawsome. We went on a tram (trolley ride) down to Glenelg which is by the sea and got to run on the beach again. Mom and Dad LOVE Glenelg and it is on their list of possible retirement places. (Hey did you know know Glenelg is one of those funny worlds that is spelled the same forward and backwards?) Then we got on a plane and went back to Sydney where we visited the Opera House, the Sydney Harbor Bridge, took ferry rides, went up into the blue mountains, went to another beach did lots and lots of walking and saw lots and lots more things. So stay turned - our adventure begins tomorrow.
