Minnamurra Rainforest

One of our favourite places to take a walk is the Minnamurra rainforest near Jamberoo on the NSW south coast, sadly we didn’t make it up the mountain to the falls this trip (I’m still recovering from having my bones pinned back together), fresh rain fall made the forest beautiful. It seems like it is around this time every year, we find ourselves there.

Snow Bunny… I am not.

As you’ve probably noticed one of these images is not like the others. Our second ever annual snow trip to Mount Selwyn was somewhat tainted by my breaking bones falling off a big cold rock into a ravine, I may have been trying to take a picture while precariously perched and it would have been awesome, had I had time to press the shutter. Still a good time was had by most, and we’ll probably be back there in 2017, but this time I’ll be wearing snow cleats.

On the trail to Yankee Hat

We decided the kids (well actually it was more like that us parents) needed some exercise this weekend, and figured a six kilometre hike was the best way to do it, as you do. So we made the trek to the Yankee Hat Rock Shelter in the Namadgi National Park just south of Canberra.  Yankee Hat is one of the only currently known Aboriginal sites in the Australian Capital Territory(ACT), those that are known can be found in the Namadgi National Park and Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve. This trail takes you across the Gudgenby Valley to the base of Yankee Hat Mountain, where you will find a tiny mural of sorts under a rock shelf. The drawings could possibly be over 3000 years old. They are the first prehistoric drawings identified in the ACT.

It’s a very easy trail, a good one to start with if you don’t want to scare people off going for a hike. We got there early and there was a light dusting of snow, which just made the whole place look wonderful. The kangaroos didn’t look as impressed as we were, but I suppose we were not sitting in a frozen swamp. Now I will let the pictures do the rest of the talking…

It was frozen and snowy!

 

snow and stick fights!

 

The kangaroos were frozen, like the swamp.

Snow clung to the trees until midday.

Itty Bitsy photo printing

The Canon Selphy printer is a quite a portable little machine. Sized about as big as a lunchbox, it can be taken to events with the optional battery pack. So you could set up a Photo Booth at a party and send people home with a souvenir! It has its own wifi and the app to do your printing with is very simple. So you can send pics from your camera, iPhone or iPad (and android devices too I hear), edit in your favourite app and then print out a mini masterpiece. Printing is limited to 6×4 and down. You can get square stickers too for your instagram pictures, and other shapes. I see a lot of scrapbooking or project life potential here!SELPHY-CP910

 

Each paper pack is a complete printing kit, containing the cartridge for you to print your photos.  So far I am very impressed with the quality and colour of the resulting prints. I’ve sent a few through the mail as postcards and from all reports they have made the journey unscathed, the printed surface doesn’t seem to scratch like previous home photo printing paper options I’ve tried. The pricing isn’t too bad either, you can get your hands on a big start up bundle at Costco for $120AU. I am getting a surprising amount of use out of this little printer. It is a lot of fun. #NotSponsored
