Nature’s Window

2015 – Kalbarri, WA Iconic Nature’s Window in Kalbarri National Park happens to be wall to wall today, with tourists and one guy comments that perhaps we should book our turn in the Window. Woody particularly likes the Indian tourists as they treat every photo like it is a portrait sitting as they sit in the ‘window’ and shout detailed instructions at the photographer to get their best side.

Remembering the Little Things

When you are getting on in years it’s hard to remember details. We know a bloke who’s a farmer and who’s also fond of tattoos.

The sounds of the bush. Continue reading Night Noises

A Chilling Thought

Dad’s talking thermometer now lives on our caravan and it normally only talks between 8:00am and 8:00pm. However we’ve now discovered a hidden feature….we went to Drouin and stayed in the little park called Glen Cromie not far from Mt Baw Baw. In the middle of the night we were woken to be told that the temperature had just dropped or should I say plummeted below zero, to a chilly -.2 degrees in fact. Now seriously, we’d had enough trouble getting off to sleep what with freezing cold noses and all and then we get woken up to tell us … Continue reading A Chilling Thought
