Father's Day

Well today is Father's Day in Australia. It partly turned out like I had wanted but that's ok. The weather really hasn't been agreeable lately so we weren't really expecting to manage a picnic. Very wishful thinking on my part.

We had been planning to go to Sheffield for a while as we thought BJ might like the murals. On the way we stopped to check out Devils Gate Dam. After all the rain in the last couple of days we were expecting to see water going over & we weren't disappointed. There was a lot. It was pretty cool to see. Also loud to hear!

Then it was on to the Town of Murals, Sheffield. There are murals all over the town. We went for a walk around the town centre looking for them all. We were right in thinking BJ would like them. You can see the scale of the pictures from this one with BJ & Stuart in front of it. This is one of my favourites. It depicts the inside of Waldheim hut at Cradle Mountain. All the animals look so nice. We just wanted to stand next to the fire in case it was warm as it was still rather cold there.
We had just got home from our outing & we were told about a minature & model train & boat exhibition that was on in town so we went there too. BJ thought it was pretty good especially the Thomas Tank engine set up that was there.
So now it is time to defrost at home & put my feet up! Maybe I will even get my sock finished today!

Glad it was a nice day for you and BJ enjoyed it all.
