Bucket List

Do you have a bucket list? I don't, but I found out that my husband does. One thing from his list was completed when we went on our holiday. 

He flew on the Nullabor. (This was @ Eucla)

Frightened some kangaroos!

Coming in to land. 

On the way home, we called in to visit friends at Victor Harbor. We stayed the night and early the next morning it was perfect for hubby to get up in the air again. 

Have a great week....Dot

Great Road Trip

I am back again (Monday's seem to be my day for blogging), to give you more on our road trip. 

We stayed 2 nights in Port Augusta. We were up early and away by 8.30 on the 2nd morning. We were keen to get to Ceduna in good time as we were meeting up with family who were relocating from Perth to Queensland. We all met up later in the day and had dinner together. It was great to catch up with them and the next morning we went our separate ways. 

Beautiful grass spot to pitch our tent in fact the only grass area in the whole park. 

On Day 6 we travelled from Ceduna to Eucla. We called into The Bight. Spectacular!!

'Selfie' in the shade. It was very warm.

Where we were sitting. So peaceful....Dot

Our Road Trip

One of the best bits of advice I have received is to PLAN WELL. 

This year Hubby and I decided to take his 4 weeks of holiday and hit the road to Western Australia. Right to the day we left, we prepared all that we could think of to make our trip a success. We had never done a trip like this before and it was exciting to plan for it.

Even though it was a miserable day (the day before we left), the car and trailer had to be cleaned inside and out. Here you can see Hubby even cleaned to top of the trailer. 

Before long we were ready to be off.

We spent the night on the Spirit of Tasmania. They pack you in well. The next morning we headed to Bendigo where I purchased some wool. I brought some for D1 and some to add to my collection I already had with me. 

We spent the 2nd night at Mildura and the following day we travelled to Port Augusta.

Garden Whoohoo

October here in Tasmania was cold and wet but this caused the garden to grow. Everything had a growth spurt; as well as the weeds. I have spent some time weeding but there is plenty more to do. It is nice to get out when the day is sunny and not too windy and tend to it. 

Look what progress I found in my vegetable patch.

Lettuces: We have been enjoying some yummy salads. I need to wash well as D3 found a little grub raising his head on her plate - "don't eat me".  The leaves are very tender and juicy.

Lavender: It smells sweet!!

Peas: there are 2 rows parallel in this patch. 

Potatoes: Before I went on holiday I planted the seed potato and they are well on their way.

Inside: I have transplanted spring onion, coriander, basil, tomatoes. D2 bought me some 'pot' plants which includes a couple of strawberries, chilli and capsicum. Should have a good supply in a month or so. 

Long weekend here this weekend and so today were are all home to enjoy the day together...Dot
