WARNING: Many pics-long post.
Well 2012 has arrived...
I am hoping for a less stressful year. Is that possible???Can i ask for this to happen.....hope so.
We decided to head up in the mountains yesterday to get out of the heat. It worked until the walking part through the bush and heading back to tumut after luch! The place we visited is Yarrangabilly Caves.
First we headed down to the thermal pool-that was the easy part !!
Then we did the bush walk around to the cave- 1.5km. You can understand why my calves on the back of my legs are so sore today!! I'm not moving very far today-LOL
Hubby asked if i took photos going through the rock formations. I wanted to tell him what i thought but the kids were in ear shot! I was flat out watching the track let alone taking photos..
Finally we arrived at the caves...
By the end of the caves, hubby offered to take my backpack cause i was well and truely stuffed!!
Our next trip to this destination - the girls will be capable of swimming by themselves and i will wait up at the top picnic ground and have lunch organised while reading a scrapping mag..LOL...
Now to finally catch up on some scrapping news. Luckily most of these scrapping shares i did before the end of last month cause i haven't had time to scrap lately.
