    Gail, I'm so glad you enjoyed yourself and really got into this challenge and trek! Thanks for sharing the pics of the birds. Did I ever tell you I've been to Australia twice? Once was for fun, but sadly the other time was when our DS was deathly ill and passed away. We still have a number of friends down under and would love to visit again.! Love, Jeannie

    Hi Gail, I loved seeing those magnificent birds and breathtaking Sunset. It's no wonder you are ready for the next Trek. Will it be in Australia again or somewhere else? I'm so happy you've had a fantastic Trek and are able to blog about it so well that I almost feel as if I've been there with you. Thank you for your support. If you're going to be home this welcome I'd love to call you as it's been too long since our last phone conversation. Miss you.

    Love You,

    Jill

    Beautiful! I love the fairy wren. Do you mind if I save it so I can use it as a wallpaper? Thanks for sharing these wonderful pictures.

    Gail I love it! We've seen so many birds and wildflowers and marsupials and breathtaking scenery that it would fill far to many blogs to show it all but these are terrific. The chick was an extra special treat The first ? was a crane of some kind, and the other was a rainbow lorikeet. Thanks for sharing this! I can't believe its ending already. But am looking forward to the next one with all of you! Terrific Blog!

    I am loving your team's blogs about the Trek! I had planned to join you but personal illness and my mom's health kept me at home. (Really it kept me at her house where there is no internet access!)
