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!

CHEERS
