It is 6:15 a.m.; ducks and humans are waiting for a bus to the harbor near Adelaide, South Australia. We will have a 45 minute ferry ride to Kangaroo Island
and then a couple days of tours. Some people are taking cars on our ferry.
We are not taking a vehicle. The ferry has left the harbor and we are sailing.
The back of the boat is a little chilly. Not much sun yet.
We are docking at Kangaroo Island.
We board our tour bus and begin exploring the island. Driving we admire the green fields. As we continued, we saw some kangaroos grazing in the fields and some fields of cattle. We saw many sheep
and some new snow white baby lambs. Our dirt roads are red.
The color will vary across the island. This is a grass tree.
Our first stop is Clifford’s Honey Farm.
This machine separates honey from the hive.
There are three levels of honey in each hive. Humans only take 2 levels. The bees need the 3rd level for their food. Bees are working here.
The farm has Ligurian bees from Italy. Bees cannot fly far, so the bee line remains pure on the island. These bees are very quiet, docile and much sought after by bee-keepers. They are easy to work and very productive. The queen bees are exported around the world. We visited the store. Humans tasted honey. They liked it. They bought chocolate coated honeycomb and honey bears. Both were enjoyed! However, the honey bears were the favorite. Yum! For more information on Clifford’s Honey Farm, visit http://www.cliffordshoney.com.au On our way to lunch, we passed the Weatherspoon farm with this sign.
Can you read it? It says: Did you bring a beer long. A very clever and original sign! Next we enjoyed a buffet lunch
at Vivonne Bay Eco Adventures Bistro and Function Centre on Vivonne Bay.
Let’s continue down the road toward our next spot.
We like our tour so far. I think you will like what we show you next time.
