[1.07.06-4.07.06] Sojourn > Edith's farm

The other day I returned from a brief weekend holiday with my lovely gal Edie. We stayed at her family's currently vacated farm near Koolunga (about 200Km north of Adelaide). Here are some photos with light commentary:

Day I - arrival and observations.



Upon arrival, we went down to the river that runs through the property and had a look at the effects of a record flood that had came about a month prior to our visit. Note the reeds in the trees as an indicator of the alarming propensity of the floodwaters.

A 'windshadow' created by the wind brushing a clump of overhanging leaves over natural debris and earth.

Two piles of stones at the edge of a paddock. Removed by hand.

Day II - walks and paddocks.








This day was spent with walks around the perimeter of the farm property - crossing over long paddocks and checking out some very old ruins dating back to the mid-nineteenth century.

Day III - directions, windows and light






A trip out to the town of Koolunga, sunrise over a paddock, and a view from the window of another ruined though beautiful two-room house.

Day 4 - depature / little house (we didn't stay here though I wished we had.)


Now I am pleased to report I am refreshed and ready to start doing some research work again.
