everyone. Welcome to our
are Annie and David Cooper. For many years we worked and lived
in Adelaide before deciding upon a career and lifestyle change
we bought a farm on Kangaroo Island, off the southern South Australian
coast. Click HERE
to learn more about the area.
It sure is a change for us. We have been going to KI, to use the
vernacular, for many years. The island is known for its beauty
and preserved natural habitat. The are no rabbits or even predator
reanimals on the island. We were so impressed during our earlier
visits that we bought, a few years ago, a holiday home in Penneshaw
which is the port for the ferry from the mainland.
in mid 2008 we made one of the biggest decisions of our life and
made it without regrets. We made a further committment to KI and
bought a farm overlooking the sea at Emu Bay on the northern shores
of the island.
on the farm while not idyllic is certainly satisfying and it is
more invigorating and healthy for us than life in the city.
is lots of work to do. The chores are in fact endless - including
keeping the wallabies away from the kitchen garden! We are nearing
the end of the drought but it is still very dusty. We had some
good rains in April 2009 which have filled the dams and shortly
will green the landscape.
you, the same rains while very welcome will also delay our building
program. Already the delivery of the material for our new shed
was rescheduled because the trucks were getting bogged.
are some slide shows of our new life. Cheers
