Saturday 25th Febraury

Another month nearly over, we have done so much so far. Its cool but not windy, bit of rain during the night. Went for a drive and checked out all the beaches. Snakes are out in the mornings sunning themselves so we’re very weary as we’ve already seen 3 on this trip.

 Dragonfly sunning.  Copperhead sunning on the track.  Nawantapu wetlands  Patterns of grasses washed up  Sand patterns.

Sofala

Had a great spot down at Sofala, lovely small town, my mother stayed here for some time panning and just loved it, said the hotel had a nice spirit living in it so I inquired, some said yes others didn’t know. Local swimming hole where we were, and got very busy during the day. I saw a Red Bellied Black snake, thought it was a shiny black stick, when it moved, then I knew.

Day 19

Friday 25th Anzac… Lest we forget….

Remember them I did down by the river, beautiful. There has been a few people arriving at Archers Crossing today. My friends took their canoe up the river, caught them here while I was taking photo’s on the shore line, so was Kate. I tried some star trails last night but there were a few to many clouds, lovely all the same. Had tea, sat by the fire with Kate and Chris.
