Perth to Adelaide
I have made this flight before - usually at night. This time the skies were blue and clear! And what a wonderful view I had of that part of Australia as we passed over. I was enthralled by the many lakes, some were coloured - reddy brown, green, blue, white and yellow. They don't show up well in the photos but I know what they are. When we passed over Esperance I watched the coast line until it ran out, and we flew over the Great Australian Bight with nothing but a huge expanse of blue water below. Several hours later we were back over land, this time it was the peninsulas of South Australia, and the islands to the south that fascinated me. It has always been my dream to travel over Australia - perhaps in a helicopter and be able to take photos of the brilliant country below.
