Saturday 11th June, Gregory River
Lovely sleep last night as it was cooler. Alice and Jack headed off, they are going home. We have decided to stay over until Monday. Lots of vans have come in. I had a rest this afternoon was so nice as we are in shade all day. Shot birds, went for a walk, chattered with people really relaxing day.
Infra-red photo of the Gregory river. This is a lovely swimming hole.
Blue Winged Kookaburra. This bird has a real funny call not like the laughing kookaburra, very timid, this was the only shot I got.
From our campsite, looking north. That’s the main bridge on the road above.
This is looking south from our campsite.
Looking south from the main bridge, we are tucked up on the right hand of the image.
Looking north from the bridge. Gregory River on right.
Different angle. Even though there are a lot of vans, people are not in each others face, lots of room for big rigs as well.
Tuesday 31st March
On the spur of the moment we went to Cradle Mountain, weather was perfect so cant miss out. What an amazing day. Was 77 km from Forth, beautiful country side, rolling farm land, road followed the Forth river.Narrow winding road and the Wilmont Road has a letterbox competition, well we took so many photos where we could could safely stop, only posted a few. Got to Cradle Mountain and had a bite to eat then caught the shuttle bus out to Dove Lake. We took the shots we wanted, then hoped onto the next shuttle and got off at the Rangers Station, got off and did the rainforest walk and saw the Pencil Pine Falls.Jumped back onto the shuttle back to the information center and then headed home via Sheffield. Perfect weather, very warm. Got home at 6.30 pm so decided to go over to the Forth Hotel and had a fabulous meal, good price and real food. We always give back to a town that allows freedom camping, thanks Forth.

Wednesday 1st, Happy New Year to everyone.
Woke to another perfect day. Had my usual morning cuppa listening to the sounds, such a wonderful way to start a day. We had two Female bowers and 3 Male bowers hanging about camp, playing in the wood pile, getting grubs I think. After breaky got cleaned up and got some shots of the bowers.
This dark Bower is the Male. This is the Female Bower.
Just relaxed around camp, don’t even need to leave camp to get to see things, always something going on. Lots of people heading down the road out of here and we just have new neighbours down the far side move in. Went for a walk up the road and saw baby Willy Wagtails, mum was protecting them from other birds, that’s what caught my attention, her noise, so cute they are, as is all babies. 🙂

Baby Kingfisher. The country road. I have used Infrared on it.
Had another camp fire tonight. Good night. This is the second to last day of our holiday 😦
