a little trip :)

This week, the kids and I have had my brother and his girlfriend staying with us from down south. A knee reconstruction, followed by a bleed, clot and infection, and then another surgery couldn't stop him from coming!! Keen as I tell you.

We got back last night from 2 day whirl wind tour

First, Adelaide River....


Lunch and a quick swim at Edith Falls


Kangaroo watching at Nitniluk 


A very sleepless night in Nilmiluk on account of a quick, noisy, build up storm. Kids were terrified!

Next morning, time with my big girls :)


The 3 of us went on the Nitmik Dreaming cruise. 

Breathtaking!


Sacred sites


Amazing geology


My precious girls :)

Then, lunch at Pine Creek


Enterprise pit from the gold rush, mining ceased in the pit in 1995 (geologist wife, not historian!)

And lastly, a quick swim at Douglas springs


To cap off an amazing trip...racing 'big rain' home!


I just love having visitors! Especially ones that love this big country as much as I do!
And next month.....another visitor is on their way!!!!! xox

Gorgeous photo's Bianca! I loved them all, especially your girls. It's great the way having visitors makes you look at your world in a different way, and appreciate the amazing things our country has to offer. How fun that Abbe is coming, you guys will have a ball! Enjoy x

Bianca, You've made me so homesick with those photos! I've been that way many a time. I often went to Adelaide River as a friend was the principal at the school. Thanks for sharing the photos :) Can you take some of the Mindle beach markets? I miss them too and the sunsets..... Ok I don't miss the build up! ;)
