An escape with the Winnie

Hello my friends......last Tuesday 16th Feb we decided to have a sanity escape.....the man has been going stir crazy at home, now retired and a senior citizen lol turned 60 ☺ so here we are at a free camp not far from home.....

We took our bikes along to, as you never know, we may actually ride em......

This place is called Coopers Creek camping ground about 12klm's from Walhalla town 

We were lucky to have a fire pit

And as the weather was quite cool (summer here and mostly stinking hot lol) we got it ready

And burn it did and we also had our new bbq style plate with legs to test out ☺

The man assisted me a little 

A selfie with Winnie and fire happening......notice he has shaved off his Mo and Goatie lol and I even have a very thick jumper on which have not worn for months ☺

Just peace and quiet all around us ☺

Some clouds passing over but all good.....

Got our tea cooking away....

Snags, mushrooms and onions

I of course have the hot Chili sauce....

And I chose the cape seed bread full of wonderful seeds ☺ and our meal was delish

While staying there I noticed this tree with shoes all over it.....

Better shot with the dark shoes showing.....strange

Up early to a healthy grill on toast for breaky and herbal tea and sharing an apple as you do......

Stopped off in our town to pick up my repaired glasses and drove to our next free camp near Marlo on the snowy river marlo information

We had a table in this free spot and a perfect view of the snowy river flowing by......"The Man from Snowy River" is a poem by Australian bush poet Banjo Paterson and you may have seen the movie......The Snowy River is a major river in south-eastern Australia. It originates on the slopes of Mount Kosciuszko, Australia's highest mainland peak, draining the eastern slopes of the Snowy Mountains in New South Wales, before flowing through the Alpine National Park and the Snowy River National Park in Victoria and emptying into Bass Strait....the open sea......

Simply beautiful

Looking towards where it eventually meets the sea....

There was even a little pier you could fish off.....definitely coming back to this spot in the future with my rod....

A little bit of crochet was done in the car during this trip.....

Jack and Mishap getting ready for another rough ride to our next unknown destination lol 

Woody came with us and certainly seemed to enjoy sitting here.....

He seemed to notice something off to the right just near the water......

You can just see something on some branches at the waters edge.....

Look a lizard!!!

Zoomed in ☺

And this other one was just to the right of that one.....neat...
We had a great time and I will now continue to post the rest of our trip over the next few days....
Thanks for dropping in on us xoxoxo

  3. Your adventures in Winnie make me want to hit the road and travel somewhere, too, Wendy! I enjoyed learning more about your beautiful country, although I am not keen on lizards. Your meals looked yummy indeed, and your photos of the shoe tree are...interesting :) I have been wearing the red mitts you sent me and they have been inspiring admiration xx
