Tuesday 3rd August 2010

Hmmm not a good nights sleep for the adults, lumpy beds, noisy aircon , Bears..Who knows ? After a nice lie in Min prepared Scrambled eggs on toast & coffee, yummy.
Took a pic of our local spidery neighbours for you : )

Maureen guided us safely to Tallulah falls, The place where many scenes from the movie "Deliverance" were filmed.
We handed over our $5 and headed into the gorge for a strenuous hike.
Ian opted for the easy route, from viewpoint 2 he headed for the stairs into the base of the valley & an upclose view of the river. ( 374 steps down ..an additional 221.(.each way) steps to an optional bridge ..which the nutter did! & 342 steps & a heart attack , back out )
Min & I took a far more difficult path round the edge, taking in view points 3-10 over the dam , Then we met up with a sweaty red faced Ian..

We then retraced our steps & stopped at our swing , where we took a phone call from Argos , re the delivery of mins new bed !

Some of the views were spectacular , The humid weather was broken by a refreshing rain storm on the way back.

On the way back we stopped at a gift shop called "Goats on the roof" With , yes you guessed it..real goats on its grassy roof, for 25 cents you can send a pot of goat food up to them via a zip wire type system..

after a drive we returned to "Thrifts Fairy" with a bag of charcoal & fire lighters..Ian may be able to incinerate some food tonight.
Eureka ! My Children have made fire!

Please note Ian can cook...

Dinner was very nice..
Tomorrow Rafting..Providing no-one goes down with Dheli Belly  !

Good night dear reader, & Claire who is currently trying to dislodge the cat from the patio door xx
