Friday Photo – New Horizons in Warrnambool

Friday Photo – Koala in Melbourne

This week's Friday Photo comes from down under.  In 2007, we went to Victoria, Australia on vacation.  The day we landed we were pretty much zombies, and found a nature preserve right in Melbourne.  This guy was curled up in the notch of the tree, and the lines of his face with the wood caught [...]
