Easter Adventures -Take 4!!





OK ... This is about the fourth time I've tried to post this ... Blogging ap is NOT playing nice. SIGH! Please excuse mistakes  that might have slipped through because I can't edit.

Let's try this again ... Silly blogging ap swallowed my first attempt to catch up. GRRRRR!

So ... Hello to all of you gorgeous blogging buddies out there! I hope you had a relaxing Easter break. I had so many plans & so many good intentions to do lots of sewing. Hmmm ... !! I DID spend some time with pencil & paper working on a new quilt design, but our original plans kind of got derailed. Nothing bad happened ... The plans just kinda changed! :0)

We had a couple of errands to run on Saturday & instead of coming home afterwards, we ended up taking one of our impromptu road trips. :0) We didn't really go too far afield, just explored some more side roads & backroads to see what we could see.


We traveled some gravel roads ...


... Crossed wild & raging rivers :0) ...


... Enjoyed some pretty scenery ...


... Admired some interesting flora (love those great grass trees!) ...


... Found the back of one of our local dams (you can see a flash of water there if you look closely!) ...


... We even confused the satnav a few times! Usually I'm the one getting lost! Tee! Hee! Hee! ...


... And we eventually found ourselves at a local national park that we'd been meaning to visit. And off we went for a walk to see ...


The falls. Such a pretty spot & lovely & green at the moment after our recent rain.


This is the pool at the base of the falls. I'm sure there is a bunyip lurking in the depths. :0)


Some of the local wildlife! Tee! Hee! Hee! And then we had to walk back to the car ... Which included walking back up 957 000 steps!!! OK ... Maybe there weren't really quite that many steps but my poor short, podgy little legs sure felt like there were!!! :0P We slept pretty well that night! Tee! Hee! Hee!

Yet again we had a great time exploring our local area ... There are so many hidden valleys & lush forest areas to enjoy, & most of them are only just off the usual track.

We also had lunch visits with both sets of parents ... Always nice to spend time with family. :0)

And then we ran out of weekend ... Don't you just hate it when that happens?! :0) What did you get up to for the long weekend? Did your plans work out? Or were you like us & took a detour off the map? :0) Whatever you got up to I hope you had at least a little bit of time to be creative. And I hope the rest of the week is wonderful for you. Another thing I didn't manage to do was catch up on some sleep ... So I'm off to keep ad date with my pillow. :0) Til next time ...

BEAR HUGS!

CHEERS!
