As promised some photos for you of my (now second) favourite picnic spot.
The kids and I packed a lunch this morning and headed off to Darlington Park, about 40 minutes from home.
After all the storms and rain our area has been having lately, everything is delightfully green.
Unfortunately, when we arrived we found the flies were so bad as to make things really quite unpleasant. After taking some snaps, we jumped back in the car for a little scenic tour, taking photos as we went.
After some sightseeing, we took a different route and drove just about into New South Wales - literally. We drove down the Lions Road and found the most amazing place, but I'm not telling you the name - I don't want it to get too discovered!
The kids had a ball swimming and lolling about in the water as you can see.
We have decided to return next weekend, and we may even take up camping!
Darlington Park with it's wonderful old fig trees (and thousands of flies!)
Technically this is the Albert River at Darlington, but it's more of a creek at this spot.
This is our new swimming spot. Sisters!
