We have been out in the great blue yonder this weekend, visiting family in Dalby, a small country town about 2.5 hours from our home. It was a lovely relaxing weekend, full of pleasant conversation and watching children play like they'd never been apart. It was sad to see how dry the land is in this terrible drought. Living on the coast we have been getting a lot of showers, which at least are greening the garden, even though it's not filling the dams. The inland areas are far drier than we are. I took a heap of photos of a walk we took the kids on. I hope you like them!
This tree is actually on the bank of a currently dry creek.
