We had a few days getaway in a State Forest about 2 1/2 hours north of here last week. It was so peaceful and relaxing and the weather was delightful. Um, until the last day when we got wet tails packing up!! All in the fun of camping
When we arrived these guys were having siesta time. They also found it peaceful and relaxing and they were not one bit timid.
Our camp on the edge of the creek.
Beautiful serene bush walks.
It is such a shame this rotten lantana has taken over a lot of the bushland in this area. Such a pest and there seems to be no stopping it.
A game of 500 was very popular and proved quite hilarious as we were all very rusty on the rules.
Beef stew done over the camp fire – delish.
There were quite a few of these large goannas about. They look so prehistoric.
We came across this rather long carpet snake on one of our walks. He was not interested in us – thankfully. They are pretty harmless.
Our extremely noisy neighbours, the sulphur crested cockatoos.
This roo was carrying a joey in her pouch.
The blue faced honeyeaters were being very naughty and were relentless in their efforts to get to our honey, bread and tomato sauce. This one is perched right at the pantry ready to swoop in.
The noisy miners were also very cheeky and one of them was even pecking at my socks to get the fluff for his nest.
There was no technology for four days and it was blissful. Now back to reality!
Until next time………………………………………Dianne.
