New horizons

Hi Everyone.We have been moving on at a steady pace covering some lovely country.The scenery changes each day in this vast land of ours.Yesterday we went to Lake Argyle Village.The drive in from the highway was stunning with great red rocky hills and escarpments.Lake Argyle is a vast expanse of water made with the damming of the Ord river.The Village is made up mainly of caravan park run by lovely friendly people who throw a Happy Hour every night to get everyone together.
Today we came into Kunnanurra and will go on from here on Saturday. Broome is the next big town and we will pass through some pretty isolated communities on the way.Phone coverage up here is pretty dodgy ,so we have to make the most of reaching everyone when we get the chance.Here are some pics of the lovely country we are passing through.

On the Road Again

Well , Our week in Brisbane flew past.It was great to spend time with the kids and the baby girls and many tears were shed when it was time to go.
You can see Poppy had a torrid time of it.
I started a new obsession in Brisbane when I bought my first cross stitch pack-something I said I would never do.Ian loves it as it keeps me very quiet. Smart ass.It is supposed to look like a cute little elephant when finished. Hmm.Fingers crossed.

We left the van at Goondiwindi when we went into Brisbane so our travels have really started from there.We camped last night by a lovely Lagoon just outside a tiny little town called Yuleba.There were several other travellers there to have a chat to and we lit a fire to keep warm by and cook Dinner.It was lovely and quiet and Ian threw the Yabby nets in with great hopes.Huh.No yabbie sandwiches.

We are now bunkered down in the Mitchell Caravan park as the roads have been rough and wet.It is too cold to camp out.We turned chicken and opted for the power with electric heater option.Lots of other people must be chicken too as the park is chocka .Hopefully the rain will stop tomorrow and we can get a bit further than today .We are used to rain but sheesh the roads are dodgy and make bouncing along in front of a van a bit interesting.
Keep well everyone and catch you soon.xxxxxx

About Me

My photo
I am a self taught arter crafter and I love to make soft toys ,dye fabric and paint. I live on a small farm in the south of Australia.It is a beautiful place ,though on a stinking hot summers day when the temp is high and the North wind is howling it loses some of its appeal.I have a lovely husband,four grown children and six extraordinarily attractive grandchildren.We have three dogs ,two cats,fifteen chooks,three ducks ,two geese and a few hundred sheep on our little farm so that keeps us in touch with nature most days.We love to grow our own vegetables and have a lovely big hothouse for the winter veg.I spend most days involved with crafting ,enjoying my husbands company and some days being Nanny to the grandkids while their parents are doing what they have to do.When we have had enough of everything and everybody we love to hitch up our caravan and disappear over the horizon for a while.I am a proud member of the etsy DUST Team and have etsy stores at
