The Last Stop : Glenn Davis

This is the last part of the Easter holiday trip. Before we were heading home, we stayed a few nights at Glenn Davis. It's such a beautiful place, good facilities and best of all, it's FREE. Yes, it has got free campsite with a hot shower and the kiosk that open on the weekend.

On the way to Glenn Davis

The boys had so much fun even though the water was freezing cold

We went for a drive to the nearby place called Turon Gates and found really stunning view. To get there, the car has to cross the river through an old wooden bridge, but we (well...the boys) decided instead of drive over the bridge, we drove straight through the river. It was really fun. The boys enjoyed it so much.

Easter Holiday Trip (Part 2)

This is a long overdue post that I have been delaying for sometime. Bourke was the next destination after we left Ligthning Ridge. We camped at the really nice caravan park with very reasonable rate. It has two lovely swimming pools, clean bathroom and excellent barbeque and kitchen facility. If you ever visit Bourke, I recommend this place.

If tent is not your cup of tea, there is cabin you can hire

Nice tropical style swimming pool

The green frog, they were everywhere in the caravan park. Seriously, they were in the kitchen, toilet, bathroom, even in our camper trailer. The boys just loved them.

North Bourke Bridge

Jandra the paddleboat, I really enjoyed the one hour cruise along Darling River

Captain Ari and Jamie behind the wheel

The famous Fred Hollows monument.

The mysterious Mt Oxley

Next post, is Glenn Davis. I'll show you the pictures later on in the week.

Happy 5th Birthday Jamie

Today is Jamie's 5th birthday.....gee how time flies. We will have a small party for him later. I have been so slack to organise one for him. Today, as normal birthday celebration ritual, four of us had dinner together with a birthday noodle as a must. Followed by birthday cake that Steve baked. It was a chocolate cake and was delicious.

And the most important thing for him, of course, the present. I gave him a binocular with compass in it, and the extended robot arm, with the hope that he will picking up his toys and pack them away. It worked so far, for how long? I don't know......
