The theme photo for this week's Sepia Saturday suggests birds, beasts, caravans, travelling, ladders etc. I'm going with caravans.

Phil and I both come from families that enjoyed caravanning and we have done quite a bit ourselves (in borrowed vans). But now we have our own, and we'll be joining the thousands of other 'grey nomads' circumnavigating this country and heading north for the winter. Hopefully I'll be able to add more birds to my Australian list, take many photos of landscapes, plants and fungi, make contact with lots of relatives on our family tree to glean snippets of information and photos to add to my database, write lots of blogs about our travels and upload photos to Flickr. Sometimes we'll stay home to play with the grandkids and pull the garden back into order, and do a bit of work to pay for the next holiday.
