Flag of Australia  , South Australia,

I made it to Kangaroo Island and it is very pretty. As my dad said, "it looks like a smaller version of Australia", and it does. The whole island has a nice small town feel and everyone waves as you drive by. There is only one real supermarket on the island and lots of beautiful beaches. 

On Sunday we went to an area called American River. Its not really a river, just a lagoon type area but oh well. They were having a market which was half market, half small garage sales all in one area with activities for kids. It is so expensive to bring things to the island so they recycle a lot of stuff here on the island which is nice. After that Skye showed me the feral cat mans house. He catches and skins feral cats and then sells the skins to people. Kinda weird but interesting to see.

I have been helping Skye and Flynn fix up an old sheering quarters into a house. It is quite a project, but will look great once its finished. They have a couple horses too that they are working on training and two beautiful boys. The boys have so much energy and remind me of my nephew. Today we are going to snowboard on some sand dunes! It should be fun.

The other day I went to the beach to relax. I went to Stokes beach and you have to walk/crouch through these boulders to get to the beach. It was really cool and the beach was nice. They have a rock pool for the kids to swim in and waves if you want to try and surf. On my way home I got a flat tyre... The car came with aftermarket tyres and no tools to get them off. I have the lock nut and a jack in my car but nothing else. My cell phone also doesn't work here on the island. Luckily Skye had an extra pre-paid phone that she activated the day before for me to use. I called Flynn and he came to rescue me. He even brought cold beer! I will have to be more prepared for next time I guess.
