I must admit that I am one of those persons who have taken their country for granted for far too long. I have been rushing around so much that I have not seen all that transpires around me. Just the other day I had to wait for three hours while my car, a Honda Civic, got serviced and to kill some time I had a cappuccino and read the paper. Still, that only killed about half an hour and so I decided to stroll around the city for a bit.

I was amazed how relaxing it was to just go for a walk and to take in the surroundings. Usually I am in such a rush that I miss all the beauty that is around me. Fortunately I had my camera with me and it helped me to see things in a different light.

It was then that I decided to start this blog, to share with others what I had taken for granted for so long, Adelaide and the surrounding countryside. Where possible I will try to leave a piece of history to go with the photos.

Captain Charles Sturt

So, just as explorer Captain Charles Sturt did as he explored this state, I will endeavour to do the same with this blog sharing with my readers some of the stories and sights of the land I call home.
