Mangrove Forest

Yesterday was a quiet day – we went up north of the city a bit to see a mangrove forest that has a nice educational boardwalk through it (I love these sorts of things). It was quite interesting; nothing like the salt marshes we have back in New England. And the roots on those trees – creepy!

Beyond that, I’ve discovered the joy of pre-packaged milk & coffee here – a little can or paper carton (like milk) that contains an iced-coffee-like combination. The crazy thing is, it’s actually pretty good! Apparently, South Australia is the only state in Australia where this coffee drink is more popular than Coke (in terms of sales). Go figure!

Well, I’ll write more tomorrow (don’t trust the date stamp on this post – it’s calibrated for US Eastern Time, which is most definately NOT where I am right now!). Ta-ta!
