Just got back from 'up north'

The family, Shooting Buddy and I spent 5 nights "up north" doing a range of fun things. It's a pretty nice time to visit the region as it's not too hot and the wildflowers were still out (however, so were the flies which weren't quite as nice). We did get some hunting in but there weren't as many rabbits around as I had hoped and we didn't see a single fox.

Here are some pictures from the trip:

Found around the farm

A Bush Turkey - first time I've ever seen one

Miss 8 hiding in the Wheat

And Miss 10 checking it out

Miss 10 driving my car (automatic) for the first time, all survived

Miss 8 obviously enjoyed her turn at the wheel

And over at the "other" farm Miss 8's favourite animal

Seen while Out and About
This area is near the farm and is known as 'The Salmons'

Termite Mounds - seen on a detour to Coalstream Park

Still some water around at Coalstream, yes they did get muddy

Pink & Grey Galah - Sitting in a nest - seen at Coalstream

Budgies - again seen at Coalstream

There are lots of salt lakes in the area ...

We found some caves to explore

Can't get away from those *(&*(^ phones


All in all a great trip. Check out my previous posts if you want to know more about the area here, here, here, here, here, here and here.

Beautiful photos, Julie. I don't dare visit Oz because I'd be afraid I'd just go walkabout, find one of those caves you mentioned, and live the rest of my life out as a hermit.

Looks like y'all had a great time! Your girls are at a great age to do things like this.

Great shots, Julie. Being an ex Bunjil boy, I sometimes miss being in the area a lot. I miss the beauty and silence(comparatively) of the bush.
