We have been doing some local exploring.
We met a man on our journey who told us the history of this abandoned homestead. Amazing story. Five brothers and sisters were born and lived their whole lives here together. The last one, in her eighties moved out less than ten years ago. Its pretty much in the middle on nowhere but apparently there used to be a town here with a bank, pub, blacksmith, church etc. This is the only old building left standing now.
A quick photo opportunity with the cousins at Terrick Terrick National Park.
Yes, Miss four is wearing a lovely patchwork skirt over track suit pants because she was "cold". It's a good look.
I doubt if there has been water lying around like this for years.
We stumbled on some pretty spots.
We have also celebrated a birthday these holidays.
He wanted cupcakes this year, nine fit rather nicely on a plate.
He only got one present this year, a brand new BMX which has already had a fair workout.
Happy Birthday buddy. xxx
