Waiting for the Train?

The SteamRanger Heritage Railway operates heritage steam trains between Mt Barker in the Adelaide Hills, over the Mt Lofty Ranges, to Strathalbyn and on through the coastal holiday towns of Goolwa and Port Elliot to the tourist resort of Victor Harbor.

Naturellement Madame! On doit toujours célébrer l'anniversaire de Lynn avec beaucoup de Champagne, particulièrement en Australie.

This is a nice photograph. I think the platform they are standing on is to escape the train? Not sure. I like the gum tree too. It reminds me of our giant sycamores that line stream beds so I am confidence somewhere along the line they are cousins.
