Aussies love to Surf, Anywhere and on Anything.


About 80 kilometres from Adelaide, on the Eastern end of the Fleurieu Peninsula, is the South Coast, and the little village of Middleton.
Surfers from Adelaide can access these surfing beaches, in under an hour and radio programmes tell us where the best waves are.
Visitors from Switzerland seem to think this is how it is done, but that's the next part of the lesson. It also involves the waters of Encounter Bay, (where Nicolas Baudin 'encountered' Capt. Matthew Flinders in 1802).

Thank you, Lynn.
Mum is approaching those final footsteps and it's 92 years of love and lovely memories that come flooding back. I wish her peace in the weeks ahead. It is so tough and cruel.
