Armidale Road Trip...
Just thought I'd jump on here and let you know where I was...or rather, where I've been. We've been on a whirlwind road trip...to Armidale and back, via Sydney. We went up to attend an old flatmate's wedding (George, who I recently mentioned in my post about Oscar), and it was a lovely way to spend the long weekend.
I asked around, and a few people recommended going up through Gloucester, along the Buckets Way and Thunderbolts Way to Walcha, Uralla, and thence to Armidale. Can I just say, that those road names nearly put us off (would we need a bucket for the trip?...do the locals drive like Thunderbolts?)...but we were assured this was the most scenic route and well worth the extra twists and turns (it is also about 40 km shorter than going up the New England Highway - or so I'm told). Unfortunately it turned out we DID need a bucket on Buckets Way...I'll leave it at that ;-). Over all though, it was a very beautiful drive and quite relaxing.
I took a few pics on the way back (the way up being a trifle frantic, and raining from time to time).
On the way back we stayed in Sydney for a couple of nights...
We took the kids to visit Symbio Wildlife Park yesterday and I took some photos of us with an Olive Python...but I took them on the mobile phone (a Motorola) and I have no idea how to get them off. If you know how to do that, and could let me know I'd really appreciate your help.
I've also been doing some more beading...I've called this one Circus, because that's what I think of when I look at it!
The beads are by Sari from Gaialai on Etsy. Sari makes some beautiful shaped beads, and uses lots of lovely colours.
Well, that's it from me for now. Hope you've had a great week thus far!
