Who is Lisa,

someone asked in the comment section? Lisa is a lady I met at the last Scrapbooking Retreat I went to in Queensland. She has a great blog about her life, her travels and her hobbies. She decided to blog every day for 30 days and is going great guns. If you would like to check out her blog, you can find it at A Life of Unlimited Possibilites

Cheers K

Bool Lagoon still...

After checking out Hacks Lagoon, we drove around to the island walk and found a bit more water. There was no where enough birds around but I liked the boardwalks to take photos of. All around us were showers - Daniel counted over 10 separate ones as we drove back to town. Very tricky to take photos of rain falling.

I've heard that Mullinger Swam has some water in it too so will try to get out there one day while the packers are in the house and there is not much to do for us.

Bool Lagoon

Someone had suggested that we had received enough rain in recent weeks for there to be water in Bool Lagoon. I decided this afternoon that this would be our last chance to go and have a look. When we first drove in, we were very disappointed as there was no water visible in Bool Lagoon, but we drove further into the Park and went to Hacks Lagoon. There was some water there with quite a few black swans and other assorted birds, mainly ducks. Of course, these guys were a long way off so luckily I had taken my zoom lens and could just get a glimpse of these guys in the viewfinder.

Another month goes by...

and I haven't posted anything on my blog! I can't believe that this time next week I will be unpacking boxes in Bendigo!!
For anyone that hasn't heard our news, we are on the move AGAIN!! This time, we get to be Victorians. Not sure they will let us back into Queensland now??
Andrew has applied and been successful in obtaining a promotion to Senior Agribusiness Manager at the branch in Bendigo. We have been over a couple of times to look around and find a house to rent. We hope the share market recovers enough that we can afford to buy a house in about 6 months. Until then we are renting a 3 bedroom house in a suburb on the southern side. It is quite a bit smaller than the beautiful big brand-new house we have here..... I suppose we will fit in.....
On Monday the packers will arrive to start filling boxes, then on Wednesday the boxes and all our furniture will be put into a very large truck. Thursday it will be unloaded and we start unpacking!! I am thinking some of it can stay packed for the 6 months!!
I have promised my friends here that I will blog more often when I get there so hopefully I can do that??
I am liking what Lisa is doing with her blog. She has promised to blog every day for 30 days. Wonder if I could do that?
Anyway better go get some dinner rustled up and then I am off out for coffee and cake with the girls.
