Australia Day

We have really been out and about this month, in spite of the sweltering heat. Last weekend we spent a few days in the bush, only an hour or so down the road from our place. We enjoyed the opportunity to explore a little further than a day trip allows.

We paddled in creeks filled with guppies and water skaters. Josh was disappointed to discover that this version of paddling did not involve canoes. It was so hot, and our car airconditioner is once more on strike, so any accesible creeks were considered fair game to cool ourselves off.

My favourite spot was Natural Bridge, a fascinating arch and cave caused by a creek eroding the sand stone. There are glow worms, but they are not visible during daylight hours.



Outside looking into the cave.

that is such a beautiful place and somewhere I have always wanted to go at night to watch the glow worms Apparently they are spectacular! Last week in Brisbane was SO hot and muggy! My sister and her babes were sweltering whilst I was trying hard to be the mature older sister and say, never mind, we'll all survive as long as we sit still in front of the fan! Hope your cooling off a bit today :-)
