Pete asked me a week or so ago if I’d like to do anything over the Easter weekend.  I reflected back on last year when we went out to waterhole only to find a crowd of 20 or so Ringers settled in for the weekend with loud music and eskies full of alcohol .  Not really conducive to a quiet family day out in nature!  So this year we decided to head bush for the day, before the weekend.  Since Pete could take a day off work, we are homeschooling and completely flexible we chose to have a family day off on Tuesday.

We haven’t been able to go to any of the waterholes/waterfalls this year because Nomi had her toenails operated on and we’ve been waiting for them to heal.  This wet season has been big and long so even though we are mid April there is still flowing water.

The plan was we would head off early after breakfast, walk up the rocks, following the water until we reached a deep waterhole, have a bite to eat, make our way back, swimming wherever we wanted.  Have a BBQ lunch and then just hang around in the shade either reading or playing card games.  So that is exactly what we did!

This was about 1/2 way. We walked along a creek with water holes, little waterfalls for about 1 hour

Though this wasn't the end of the waterholes, it was the end of our walk for the day. The kids had a swim, we ate morning tea, we chatted for a bit before heading back for lunch.

Pete walked up and around the waterhole and was able to take a photo looking down on us. Beautiful country.

A wonderful day out!
