Fun Times!

Recently we had the pleasure of my darling cousin and her family all the way from Sydney!  They got to see the farm for the first time and had a look at crutching.  Then we packed up and headed to the Flinders Ranges for a week of camping and sight-seeing!  I had always wanted to go to the Flinders and they didn't disappoint! We had lots of incredible views and went on a great station tour of 'Alpanna' station and the famous 'Skytrek' self-drive tour on Willow Springs Station!  Both involved a great deal of hard tracks so we got a great deal of 4WD-ing in!  We introduced the boys to the fun of Geocaching and found a few in our travels.

Feral goats are an ongoing problem.  This one looks like his days are numbered though!

We stayed in Brachina Gorge and Parachilna Gorge, did the Bunyeroo Scenic drive, had a look at the Aroona ruins and climbed to a great view of Wilpena pound (I'm really unfit!)! Lots to do and we only covered the central Flinders Ranges!  Our camp fire cake cooking was perfected as we learnt a bit about the night sky sitting around the campfire.

Now we are back into the big workload here.  Calving is nearly finished and we are well underway with our lambing.  However, stock need hay and grain, movements must be made to different pastures, fences must be fixed and soil must be plowed and sown.  Just some of the jobs needed!

This weekend I will conduct my second Stampin' Up! workshop and I'm quite excited about it!  There is so many fun things coming up and wonderful products being released!  Check out my website to learn more about whats going on!

Tomorrow night the Naracoorte Camera Club 'Captured Images' will open it's second exhibition at the Naracoorte Art Gallery!  I will have two pictures on display and one series.  I hope anyone who is nearby will get a chance to support our local group!  Some pictures are up for sale too!  I'm really enjoying the group and slowly learning about my super camera!
