At some point this summer the heat must have fried my brain, I know this because it failed to engage when my mouth said “Hey how about we head north for Christmas? But what’s a camping trip without one good story to come from it? We decided our first stop would be Lake Liddell, where we had a little misadventure. Check out my column for the story My Fairfax column page….
Welcome to Tingha!
On top of Mount Topper, overlooking Tingha and Stannifer (Northern NSW).
We climbed Giants Leap near Muswellbrook. Super steep, there were SO many complaints.
Went for a drive on a sunday, saw some prettiness.
The Illawarra Fly tree top walk through a rainforest canopy is a unique experience, that is certainly not for those with vertigo issues. The kids loved it and were shit scared at the same time, especially when the tower starts to wiggle 😉 Great place for a different kind of weekend adventure, and you can also go ziplining.
The smallest one has had his second day at school. I found myself loitering outside the school gate about half an hour early than I needed to, he emerged looking hang dog tired. Crawling up my body as if I was a tree and cuddling me like a baby would. Man do I feel guilty.
But I can also see small hints that he is picking things up already, the change from my baby to a boy is happening. Well who am I kidding, it has already happened, but he’ll always be my wee man.
Saw this beautiful creature in Booderee National Park in the Jervis Bay Territroy. I’m reliably informed its a square tailed kite, a not often seen bird of prey.
