Our Autumnal seasonal rains have not appeared for over ten years and March in that period of time has been unseasonably dry and warm. Until this year, that is.
As I have mentioned elsewhere we have our two grandsons, 4 and 7, staying with us for two weeks while their other grandparents are touring Egypt and Jordan - City of Petra is on their agenda. The boys are 'city boys' and really got a shock to see fruit growing on trees, vegetables in a garden plot and cows producing milk. They are also experiencing a 'dietry change' and eating good, wholesome and healthy country produce and not the usual supermarket chemical 'Heat-&-and-ready-to-eat' meals. Add to that good clean country air instead of Sydney smog and they are really get a 'lifestyle change'.
Yesterday we needed a break from their indoor games, nintendos, ceaseless DVD's, etc so we took them over to Gold Creek in Canberra, firstly to the National Dinosaur Museum and then to the Gold Creek Reptile Park.
Here are a few images from both.
