On another note – it’s Easter Sunday (so Happy Easter everybody!) and we’ve had a blissful few days. Friday morning, we packed up the car to the gunnels and travelled to the Gunnado Farm near Maroon Dam (http://www.camplakefire.com/). Gunnado is owned by Alex’s inlaws. It’s an old dairy farm and there are still a good few cows around, although not much milking nowadays. The farm is beautiful and so peaceful! Although, with the little Foley monsters running wild, not as peaceful as it could be! :roll:
We went down to the creek on Friday afternoon and the boys launched into the water, splashing away and building a mini dam with the river rocks. It was deliciously cool after the hot, humid walk and we got some excellent scenic shots along the way. We made our way back for some dinner and then lazed about, chatting, laughing, chasing the kids around and just generally doing nothing, which was fabulous!
Next morning, everybody helped to get breakfast on the table and after brekkie, the kids got rides on the quad bike with Kerry AKA THE FARMER AKA "Poppy". The Easter Bunny also came for a visit and left everybody some easter eggs, which the children collected and shared. The boys were on a sugar high, but we tried to get them to burn it off running around the farm :lol: It worked somewhat, because they both went down for a nap later the morning and Simon and I could take it in turns to go for a walk and get some shots around the farm. Even later still, Alex and I took a walk to the milk shed and then were intent on following a trail up the farm, but were totally daunted by the freaked out by the cows everywhere. There were huge crowds of them along the way and we would have had to push our way through them, which neither of us was keen to do! :lol:
Back at the farm, we enjoyed the view from the verandah, chatted some more while the boys were sleeping and when they woke, they were positively feral 8O Yep, it was time to go. Simon and I started packing up and then Alex and I wandered around the garden, taking cuttings from Margie’s garden. She has one amazing garden, full of interesting bits and gems hidden behind shrubs. I managed to get some shots of the garden too.
It was a good couple of days and thankfully we all got a good night’s rest after the country air. We needed the rest too, to prepare for the Easter Egg hunt this afternoon at Louisa’s (and yes, we’re quite, quite sick of chocolate at this point in time!) This was good fun, as always. Good food, good company and good wine. Louisa tried to talk me into running *eek* No doubt, she must have thought the copious amounts of wine I’d consumed had befuddled me enough to agree! 8O LOL It was nearly 5pm before we made our way home, gave the boys some supper and got them ready for bed, so we could get to our hundreds of photographs!! :lol: It’s nearly 9:30pm and I’m nowhere near having them processed! At least I’ve got them off my cards, eh? :D
