We left Monday morning to a drizzly, misty Highlands morning only to get past Canberra and get some glimpses of sunshine that lead to 4 days of pure sunshine and blue skies as soon as we hit the Snowy Mountains.
There was some fishing, some reading, some swimming, some drinking, some fire gazing, some sightseeing, some mountain climbing, plenty of driving, lots of laughter, plenty of whinging and fighting and shouting and some memories that we will have forever.
I seriously fell in love with that part of the world. The big sky. The mountains. The clear air and the beautiful vistas around each corner. We drove over the mountains, through the mountains up and down them and I have to say that the babbling brooks and streams, yellow grasses, silver gum trees are some of the prettiest I have seen in this country of ours. It was a great place to spend Australia Day, a wonderful time for me to disconnect from the outside world and a chance for the kids to just be. Play. Make stuff up because there wasn’t much else to do.
Now, back to reality.
