Still Exploring New South Wales – Back to Harrington

Tuesday 11th March 2014, 483klms / 300 miles:

We in the southern hemisphere have just entered autumn.  Our summer was rather ordinary, and now, suddenly, the skies have turned blue and the days are stunning.  Here are a few photographs from our strolls around Harrington and nearby Crowdy Head, and also a little photo story of the local pelicans.  You will notice the white patches under every light post on the jetty, and looking up, you will notice that pelicans sit on each post – – – – imagine, the island of Nauru, is completely made up of phosphate, aka, bird poo …

  2. Gwen, enjoy your holidays.
    You have mentioned above that you could be told how to link you post to your webpage. Here it is. I am no geek. But self taught old man who can just about work around.
    Step1. Write “here” as desired where you want to put the link.
    Step2. Select “here”. You will see above the blog a link becoming active.
    Step3. Click on this link.
    Step4. A new pop-up Window will open up.
    Step5. Fill in the URL where your webpage is.
    Step6. In the Title box, please fill in here again.
    Step 7. Click on “Add Link”. you will be redirected to your post. You will notice that your “here” has become blue. Which will be your link when you publish your post.

    I hope it helps.
    Enjoy your travel and blogging. All the best.
