First trip to Mildura

On Sat. Aug. 22, we took off for Mildura for specialty Training.  Mildura is about
a 5 hour drive from Adelaide and it was beautiful!  Here are a few scenes from
our drive.  
We passed some gorgeous rivers with riverboats and huge pelicans floating
on the river.  
Its almost springtime in Austrailia and the blossoms are coming out.  We saw fields
of orange trees, lots of vineyards, fields of lemon trees and many of these
blossom filled trees which we aren't quite sure what kind of trees they are.  
I didn't get a very good shot of this but the rivers were just beautiful and the 
sunsets magnificent. 
We are getting used to driving on the opposite side of the road, but the speed limit 
signs still make us do a double take.  

I finally saw some kangaroos and some emus!!!!  They were awesome!  We were 
able to get close enough to take these photos while they were just standing
still but when they started to jump away it was very cool.  
Another shot of the beautiful riverboats. We had so much fun on this drive.  Can't
wait to go again. Australia is beautiful country no matter where you go.  We 
met such nice people everywhere we went.  Mildura is world famous for their
delicious fruit.  We saw fruit stands all along the road and kept thinking we'd 
stop and then it got dark on us.  Another reason to go back!!
