A Little Trip- Eildon

Hello dear friends,

My husband and I had a short but lovely time away in the country this last weekend...  I was really craving a bit of fresh air and country vistas! We stayed in a little caravan park cabin in Eildon with my SIL and her DH.

On the way, we drove through country towns that had been almost completely destroyed from bush fires three years ago... it was so good to see houses being rebuilt and new forest growth, green and lush.

New delicate growth is apparent on these blackened giants.

Caution...Wombats cross on this road!

"The Pondage".... created from overspill from Eildon Weir... lots of wildlife to see here... of course I forgot the binoculars!

Wish my camera lens was longer!

Sulphur-crested Cockatoo.

It ended way too quickly of course, next time we will stay longer... and I will bring my binoculars!

And because I missed out on I Heart Macro yesterday... I am adding my photo today. So, head on over to Lori's for a look at other close up and macro photo fun.
