Bruny Island is almost two islands, joined by a narrow, 5km-long sandy isthmus called the Neck. Renowned for its wildlife (little penguins, echidnas, mutton birds), it’s a windswept, sparsely populated isle, blown by ocean rains in the south and dry and beachy in the north. Access is via a short car-ferry chug from Kettering. Bruny’s coastal scenery is magical. There are countless swimming and surf beaches, plus good sea and freshwater fishing. South Bruny offers the steep, forested South Bruny National Park, which has some beaut walking tracks, especially around Labillardiere Peninsula and Fluted Cape. #Tasmania
Interesting. She says introvert is different to shy. Shy is nervous about being accepted. Introvert is just "happier with a quiet environment". You can overcome shyness with practice, but introversion isn't a problem, just a different way of being.

It's hard not to feel like shit when you flee Iran, build a life in Australia, become a citizen, run small businesses that employ people and are now told that you now can't even travel to the United States.
That's how my family and the many thousand Australians born in the countries targeted feel.

What makes a really beautiful, long-lived #sunset? 🌅 Last night's layer of altocumulus cloud high over Adelaide, with a clear area to the west, meant a long 'window' with the sun at the right angle for refraction to produce orange and red colours. The clumps of cloud that make up cumulus each reflect those colours slightly differently, producing subtle shades and textures. To hear the full story, from our supervising meteorologist in Adelaide, go to http://media.bom.gov.au/downloads. Photo: Sunset at Brighton Jetty, SA, 1 February 2017, by Colin Haigh.
The Bacon Tree Two Mexicans are stuck in the desert after crossing into the United States , wandering aimlessly and starving. They are about to just lie down and wait for death, when all of a sudden Luis says: "Hey Pepe, do you smell what I smell. Ees bacon, I theenk." "Is, Luis, eet sure smell like bacon." With renewed hope, they struggle up the next sand dune, & there, in the distance, is a tree loaded with bacon. There's raw bacon, there's fried bacon, back bacon, double smoked bacon, every imaginable kind of cured pork. "Pepe, Pepe, we ees saved! Ees a bacon tree!" "Luis, maybe ees a meerage? We ees in the desert don't forget." "Pepe, since when deed you ever hear of a meerage that smell like bacon? Ees no meerage, ees a bacon tree!" With that, Luis staggers towards the tree. He gets to within 5 yards, Pepe crawling close behind, when suddenly a machine gun opens up, and Luis drops like a wet sock. Mortally wounded, he warns Pepe with his dying breath: "Pepe, go back man, you was right, ees not a bacon tree!" "Luis, Luis miamigo, what ees it?" "Pepe ees not a bacon tree. Ees... Ees... Ees... Ees... Ees... Ees... Ees... a ham bush." SO SORRY. I know there is something wrong with me for sending you this. Just couldn't help it! Little voices made me do it! And I bet you tried to do the accent, didn't you? I know you did! You're grinning aren't you?....:)..:)
Most people stepping on board a cruise ship would naturally assume they’d arrive at the destination of the ocean liner.
But for Kathie, 40, her recent holiday took an unexpected but very welcome turn when Air Ambulance was called in to pluck her off the ship and fly her to a hospital in time to receive an urgent kidney transplant.
