Me at the start of our bushwalk.
This post was supposed to go up on Saturday morning before we left home, but Blogger was having one of its down times. However, now I can post, update and put in photos all in one:
We haven't been out to the country since New Year's Day. Missed out on the annual Fryerstown Antique Fair because of the heat. But now that it's cooled down a bit we are off. The boys love having the house to themselves, but I always leave a list of chores for them to get through before we get back. Mom's a meanie!
Will catch up with Blogworld when we get back on Monday.
Got back from the country in time for lunch. Chores had NOT been done ("didn't expect you back so early!!"), and Mom is in a filthy mood.
Still, the weekend was fantastic, the weather was absolutely superb, and we had lots of time to read and go for a bushwalk. As per usual, the maps and signage were pathetic, and after I post this I'm going to fire off an email to the local ranger. Someone could have got into serious trouble, getting lost and without water on even a moderately warm day. We are used to this however, so turned back and retraced our steps. That's always a bit of defeat though...
Remains of afternoon tea, now for a good read.
Reading or gawking at scenery?
From our campsite, towards the setting sun. If you enlarge this photo you can see our shower enclosure and, ahem, other amenity further to the right. Taking a shower using a solar bag, and warmed by the afternoon sun is one of the real pleasures in life.
