2018 Mount Gambier christmas pageant

This is one of my favourite days of the year. It means Christmas is ON like Donkey Kong. 

We traditionally put up our Christmas tree this weekend, not a day before!

I get just as excited as the kids do. Probably more so, as I wave back a the happy smiling people on the floats. The pageant has such a fantastic cheery, friendly atmosphere. How can anyone not feel good here?!

Exploring Red Rock Bay

We are so lucky to have a such a fabulous natural playground right on our doorstep. Red Rock Bay is a short drive from our holiday house in Pelican Point, where we spent the weekend.

I saw things I have not seen here before and I've been here lots of times! Seals for one thing, and also real live sea urchins. The moving spines on the urchins look like moving appendages, it was mesmerising! I had only seen dead ones washed up on the shore.

Another thing that had us going for a closer look was a rusty Landrover carcass, obviously swallowed by the ocean and then spat out again, after the salty raging sea had taken it's toll. It is amazing the sea has this much force, tumbling  an entire vehicle around in it's belly and coughing it up somewhere else. There's a lot of reef around here that it would have had to be washed over too. It makes me wonder where the owner is now and if they a curious to where there car had washed up.

Written on the back of the Landrover...I think you had a problem!
