I am spending a few days with a family of six (four kids ages 10-17) on a dairy and egg farm just outside of Balclutha. This is real farm life and I'm loving it!

Next morning, we took the train down to Melbourne which was quite busy considering it was Easter Friday. Anyway, its such a nice way to travel.
