I'm sure Ren has just fainted when she saw that I actually started the thread this month!

I finally got my camera out and have been able to take some different photos to the norm. Conor went to a Scout camp in the Adelaide Hills so I wandered around and saw some wonderful things like this little fella hanging onto his Mum. Chances are you'll see a bit more of him in the days to come ... wink

I was at a horse fair in a nearby village last weekend, and this old-fashioned tractor caught my eye. He reminded me of Brum, probably because of the headlamps which look so like eyes!

Another photo which I wil have to take a better one next time. The Little Mermaid had done on vacation to China so I had to carry on and came across the Opera House across the water in Copenhagen, it was opened in January 2005. Slowly getting closer to the hostel but still a way to go with a lot of luggage on my back and shoulder...lol

These are Golden Barrel cacti. You may have seen them because when they were discovered in 1889, they were sent to botanic gardens and palaces all over the world, almost depleting them in the wild.

Having found a number of people recognised where my photos were taken I'll leave this one blank and see if anyone knows it by tomorrow.
