Cup Day was an appropriate day to visit Nagambie and see the new bronze statue of Black Caviar beside the lake.
We were not alone – the area was crowded with sightseers taking photos and many people happily standing in the garden while their friends snapped them beside the very impressive statue. It made me think about how selfish we can be as human beings; impressed enough to want a photo but with no respect at all for the work that also went into the garden 😦
I noticed this adorable little addition over our back fence yesterday 🙂
Unfortunately, he/she was a little camera shy and trotted off when I got out my camera but I’m sure I’ll get many more opportunities.
For just forty cents you can ride anywhere you want to 🙂
At least today my photo uploaded easily. I don’t know why the one I selected yesterday wouldn’t; perhaps it was Murphy’s Law – I had a big day ahead and everything I tried to do seemed to take twice as long. Today will be even busier! Halfway to Traralgon to visit my parents in Traralgon, my eldest son Nathaniel called to say he was only two days away. He’s coming to visit from Gladstone QLD, with his wife Chau and son Jackie but I wasn’t expecting him until late next week. He managed a few extra days off work . . . so the 3000 things I was hoping to get done before then will all have to be compacted into today, well at least as many as I can fit in! I woke much too early, especially after the long drive yesterday, but I couldn’t sleep. A good start now with the photo successfully uploaded 🙂
Driving to Traralgon yesterday sort of negated the convenience of having a new more local printer but I did collect the December issue along the way, as well as the shopping, new envelopes, stamps and visited Pip and my parents and managed to stop for a coffee with Rod who was working near Seymour when I picked up PW 🙂 So . . . a busy couple of weeks ahead but sure to be wonderful 🙂 and your copies of PW should arrive early next week 🙂
We have a paddock full of ponies and horses over our back fence. Perfect for visitors to pat without the feed bill 🙂
