Bush Walking

We had an early start today as a neighbour of ours had recommended a drive to Mt. Sugarloaf. It's only about a 30 minutes drive but it was a roasting hot day so we decided to make the most of the morning.

It was a good ol' steep drive up a windy road, and the kids were a little worried as they looked out of the side windows at the steep drop, but it was worth the drive as the views from the top were amazing.

We had a very small picnic surrounded by bushland, with plenty of kookaburras and big magpies sizing up our feast. We set off on our very first bush walk, although we weren't that prepared for it. We were all wearing sandals for a start (called thongs over here), and Rhiannon spent most of her time knocking sand and dirt out of hers. When it got a bit too tricky underfoot we turned around and headed for cooler climes.

Gina's getting a dabhand at setting the camera timer because we were in the middle of nowhere in the picture below!
