Wotta – not again!

WOTTA CANYON – 20 November 2022
If I said to some of my canyoning friends that I was doing Wotta Canyon, they’d be forgiven for thinking “what, again?”.  Yep, off to Wotta again, but in my defense, with Onni offering to lead the canyon and Anna saying “ah, nah, not doing Pilcher again” I offered them the option of Wotta & Birrabang, neither of which they’d done before (well, at least Onni, Anna’s pretty much “done” everything).

So, what else is there besides caves?

KANGAROO ISLAND – 19 October 2022
Clare had slotted in a day for us to see a little of the “sights” on the Island.  There had been full on surveying now for three and a half days, most of it in squeezy little holes, so, off we went with our guide Pam to see the sights! Continue reading
