Murrindindi Day 2

Well it rained all night, its cool and still raining. Get some inside jobs done. Had a break in the weather so grabbed Dons army coat and went for a walk, then saw the very black clouds coming so walked a wee bit faster back. Did a big cook up in the Thermal pot. Very cold and miserable.

 Fairy Wren Eastern Yellow Robin  Don’t know this one  Crimson Rosella, I stalked it for ages to get close enough. Its eating thistle flowers.  The river, you can see trees that have fallen.  Very fast flowing and very cold.  Bush wren or fantail, not sure.  Female fairy wrenEastern Yellow Robin

Murrindindi State Forest.

Up and away by 9 am and 14 degrees. Got to Yea and headed for King Parrot Creek, neither of us liked it so went back to Yea to the info centre. They were very helpful and suggested Murrindindi State Forest, so we got there and its lovely, we took the Water Gauge camp area. Lovely big sites, dug in and concreted fire pits, very safe. This whole area was burnt out 8 years ago. Can still see the devastation.

 You can see the rows of bush between us and the next site, real private.
