A New Epik Mural in Goolwa

3 Comments

There’s a bright and brilliant new mural to look for in Goolwa when you’re next visiting the Fleurieu Peninsula. As you drive into town on Alexandrina Road you’ll find Kessell Street on the right and the Ibis Siding Garden Centre on the corner. Turning into Kessell Street, the eye catching mural featuring a blue wren, bees and flowers, fills the wall of the garden centre.

Fishing SA Magazine – Featuring Moonta Bay Yorke Peninsula

I’m happy to report that I’ve added another magazine title, to the list of publications that I’ve contributed to.  In the April / May edition of Fishing SA magazine, a South Australian sport fishing magazine which features all things fishing, camping, boating and outdoors, you will find my story on fishing at Moonta Bay on Yorke Peninsula. This is one of our favourite fishing destinations for the variety you can catch and because it’s a spot that is very safe for fishing in the tinnie.

The Magnificent Flinders Ranges in South Australia

The Flinders Ranges is one region in South Australia that gets mentioned in all the tourism guides, as a must see destination in the state, and for good reason.  Even to those of us who live here and can visit this range easily, the breath taking panorama of mountains, wildlife, gorges and natural bushland make you feel lucky to have such a place to explore and savour.

You Know You’re From Adelaide When…

Writers Week has come and gone for another year and like last year, I took advantage of local libraries live streaming the festival and went to my local library to listen in. One of the talks I was interested in seeing was called City Series. This chat involved 8 different Australian novelists and writers who in 2011, were given the task to write about their home cities. The idea was to explain our cities, not in a guidebook way, but rather in a way that evoked intense memories and resonated deeply with others experiences of their own cities, or to give others a deep sense of what it’s like to live in our particular cities.

Hahndorf Resort – Caravan Park in the Adelaide Hills

This is one caravan park that is very aptly named, it is all resort without the resort price that other parks sometimes charge. Hahndorf is only half an hour from Adelaide on the south eastern freeway and that is the direction I would urge people to come into the town from, with a caravan in tow.  To come in from any other direction means driving through the main street of Hahndorf which takes nerves of steel, due to the narrowness of the road combined with parked cars on both sides of the road, continual flowing traffic and pedestrians crossing the road. Believe me I lived in this area for many many years and the popularity of this town is always like this, any time of the day, week and year.

Caught Inside – A Book of Hope

As I was reading this book, I found myself holding my breath, willing things to go right even though I knew the outcome. At one minute cheering on the inside, touched by the honesty and humanity of all the medical staff involved and then almost in tears, and this is all by page 42!

I’m sitting by a beach reading ‘Caught Inside’ the story of Chris Blowes, a young South Australian who on Anzac Day 2015 was surfing in the wrong spot at the wrong time and was attacked by a great white shark – not once, but twice.

The miraculous circumstances that led to him being saved by mates, carried up a cliff in a remote area of Eyre Peninsula in South Australia, dedicated hard work by health professionals and then his subsequent recovery is quite incredible.
