Chill Dude

24/04/14 – Oh what a glorious morning, oh what a glorious day 🙂 so peaceful, beautiful blue skies, birds chirping hubby by my side what more could a girl ask for 🙂 this is the life.


How quickly things can change, one minute we have the place to ourselves, go for a walk, come back and there are several other campers with more rolling in. Being the Anzac weekend, locals have come to enjoy the serenity of the bush setting.


We have gone for a couple of paddles up the brown with green slime river, certainly not suitable to swim in, barely good enough for a paddle. Nevertheless it was still peaceful on the water and a great way to get closer to the birds.

There are lots of Cockatoos, Corellas, galahs and several other varieties of birds and one we had not seen before a Pacific Bazza, nice looking birds.





We saw 3 goannas on one walk. Not a bad place to chill for a few days.

The green slime on the top of the water had gathered near the boat ramp, kind of pretty in a yucky sort of way.
