    The blue bottles hang around in the more tropical waters, and only at certain times of the year :)
    Lizards can't hurt you, they're really cute actually, I've got a resident blue tongue lizard in my feed room that is about 20cm long. He just sits and watches me make up feeds and I give him a bit of carrot and some pellets :)
    Spiders, we've got a few nasty ones, the red backs are pretty bad. But I'm still alive and kicking, have yet to be hospitalised or even made sick by a spider!
    The sharks, well.... we have a fair few of those I'll admit! Particularly in South Australia and Western Australia I believe. We get some very large great whites, 6 foot is not uncommon. But generally they won't touch you. A handful of surfers will get taken each year, but compared to how many get killed coming off a horse or in a car accident, it's pretty minimal :)
    You did forget the salt water crocodiles though! Now those ones are nasty buggers, in Darwin you can't even swim in the ocean because they all hang out at the beach. There have been a lot of people taken by crocs :/

    We have no large, land predators though like you guys!

    Yep, it's BLOODY hot!!!! However - I much prefer summer to winter and it doesn't even snow here. And daylight savings is so brilliant, I can go and feed the nags at 8pm when it's cooled down, and its still daylight!

    -2c.... brrrrrrrrr no thank you!!!! The lowest it gets where I am in the middle of winter is around 4c and that's at night. During the day, you are really unlucky to be under 13c! Right now it's a quite nice 37c, air condition is pumping, and I am sitting on my balcony under a shade cloth, with a Southern Comfort and Lemonade with ice in one hand, my laptop in front of my and my latest drawing on the go.
    Bliss :)

    Gotta love the hot summer days of South Australia, 49 degrees celcius on our farm the other day!
    And well it looks like we live in a dessert during the summer all of our paddickks dry up.



    And then 40 minutes away is this

    I don't think I could cope with living too far inland CaitlinPalomino - I enjoy the beach far too much, and the sea breeze that comes with it!! When it hits 44c here then I start to melt!!!!

    That last sentence has me convinced! I'd rather be there, right now.

    I am not really that bothered by nasty critters. Sharks do kind of freak me a bit. Something about being eaten is a lot worse than being killed in a riding accident.
    Our weather is very tame and quite blah for the most part. We did have a pretty heavy snowfall last week, followed by frozen rain and wind, so that now there are many, many snapped trees and broken trees and limbs all over the ground. The woods are still impassiable on many of the trails. Snow is now melted. We had about 7 inches but some places got twice that. Snow here is modestly rare, so we dont' deal well with it.

    I would love to get snow. I went on a ski trip in my last year of high school many years ago, we went to the Victorian Alps and it was fantastic, had an absolute ball. None of us had ever seen snow before so it was a real treat. I can't imagine snow being as infuriating as you guys that have to deal with it all winter make it sound!!

    I'd love to take a couple summer snaps for everyone freezing their buts off right now, but I'm in Brisbane where we've had torrential rain for the last week. Looks like it'll be keeping up for at least another week too, right when all the comps are starting and I have no where dry to ride :(

    As for the heat, ya'll can keep it, it will be back up in triple digits here soon enough and I can't really complain about an average temp of 55*F for the month of January.
    Haha this is what gets me, most of ou wildlife are poisoness, but if you leave them alone they won't hurt you

    I work in the bush and have yet to seen one snake yet, I see lots and lots of spiders daily (which scare me every single time I see them lol) but most aren't that poisness, and hey I'm still alive and kicking

    Sharks do scare me though, but pretty sure the deaths aren't getting higher it's just were taking more note of them.
