We've been to Beachport in South Australia a few times to visit Craig and Wendy who have a beautiful spot overlooking the ocean. The town is vibrant and as picturesque as a postcard. It was great just hanging out, playing with their adorable 2-1/2 year old granddaughter, Chloe, soaking in the stunning coastline and yes....sampling regional wines.

I'm back in Balranald and Roger is still working the night shift, which at least spares him from heat and flies that plague the day shift. He will have 6 days off next week, and we're going to charter a houseboat to go down the mighty Murray River for 5 days which we are really looking forward to.
So, a few more days of reading books, and repeating the mantra, "it's not a tent in the Kalahari....it's not a tent in the Kalahari...."
"It's not how much we have, but how much we enjoy that makes happiness."
