Australia Here We Are

We were in the New Delhi airport on December 15th watching the news of the hostages in the Sydney cafe.  We were holding boarding passes to a flight to Sydney and wondering if we were going to make it to our holiday travels.  We arrived the next day with the hostage situation resolved, and a city much the same as before.  The sleet and snow of the Himalayan Mountains were behind us, and the sun of Australia ahead of us.

 We are now on Kangaroo Island after 4 days in Sydney and a night in Adelaide.  Here are a few choose photo of our Australian travels so far.

Just out our front door

We've loved all the walking up and down the hills, but we've really enjoyed all the beautiful scenery.  Here is just a couple views around our house.
This is what we see just out our front door,
and this is what we see from our driveway.

This is looking just past our current house at sunset.  The purple color is from the reflecting sun.

Here is what we see half a km from our house.

Sunset walking home after school.  The sun actually sets above the horizon, a phenomena known as winterline.  Winterline can be seen in late fall and early winter in Mussoorie and some place in Switzerland.
