A wonderful adventure

Today my 3 daughters & I went on an adventure!

To this place...

It is called ladies Well 

Its on the edge of  The Barrington Tops National Park, NSW Australia
I have to say its one of the prettiest places Ive ever been

We went on this adventure to do a bit of location scouting for Dream child No.1's major work for her Higher school certificate, art assignment

She has a pretty incredible project developing, which I will be sure to share with you all as things progress!

It was a great way to spend the day with my 3 favourite girls

Dream child No.1 drove as she is on her learners permit & she certainly got some experience today with all sorts of driving conditions

We crossed the Allyn River about 8 times on the long windy road

& each time it was either a one lane bridge or a low level crossing

she even had to drive thru water on one of the crossings

there where areas with cliff faces on one side & a steep & slippery slope on the other

there where other areas that where so serene it was hard to concentrate on the road & not just admire the country side

there where dirt roads

& dairy farms, where you had to wait for the livestock to move off the road, I could  reach out of the car window & pat the cows

We stopped & introduced ourselves to this echidna

had a chat with this kookaburra

don't you just love this gateway

this is certainly a case of using the resources available to build your stock yards

We admired the history of the townships

& the creativity of the farmers

you just don't see letterboxes like this in suburbia!

It was a great day out & a real reminder of just how beautiful Australia is.

None of my photo's have been edited & it was a cloudy, overcast day, they really don't do the scenery justice, although it was fun to have a play with my new camera.

Hope everyone else is having a tremendous weekend!
