The town we are staying at had an Easter show and parade so we all went down to enjoy it
There were lots of old steam powered machinery displayed
Hubby loved this kind of stuff and as usual started chatting to one of the older men who owned this machine and found out all sorts of information that I just don't understand. But the menfolk did so that's good lol
The parade started at one. So we found a nice grassy spot to sit and watch. First up was this lovely lass. On her horse and carrying our flag.
Then Clydesdale horses pulling this coach and lots more horses pulling all sorts of carriages. Even some donkeys
Some older cars, trucks and other automobiles.
And a couple of steam powered ones. It was all very exciting
The SES had a few of their trucks and things in the parade. Here is paddy the platypus in the little tinny
After the parade we left but I'm sure the locals all stayed longer and enjoyed the rest of the day.
It was a lovely day and was nice to get involved with the local community
Here we are camping at a private belongs to a friend All set up and ready to relax
There are quite a few people here. Everyone is doing their own thing a no mingling it's very relaxed. Kids are riding motor bikes and dogs are visiting every body hoping to get a pat and many be some food lol
Only a few minutes by car is the waranga basin. A huge fresh water man made lake. The kids have a ball swimming and being towed on apparatus behind boats
As we don't have kids we are just relaxing and enjoying the nice weather and having a nice break
Happy Easter to all that celebrate and wherever you are enjoy the long weekend
A short week this week. Easter long weekend starts tomorrow. I've been busy organise our caravan for a few days away
The day will start early as we drop off our son and new daughter in law at the airport for them to start their honeymoon and we will keep driving up the Hume highway and spend a a couple of nights in rushworth.
I finished the two five ply blankets and have left them with our fabulous leader to be taken to the Salvation Army and I've started my first corner to corner.
I really love this. Is so quick and easy. Using up more of the stash and another blanket for charity
So everyone have a wonderful Easter, Drive carefully and stay safe
Well maybe not the Easter bunny. But the ones around here. This one was just casually sitting in my drive way this morning
This is the hole one decided to start in my rose garden IN THE BACK YARD.
My two square garden beds which I planted all those packets of seeds into. Have come to naught.
They all sprouted and looked wonderful and then over night. Gone yup bunnies thought I had laid out a smorgasbord for them. The seedlings keep trying. But they just keep coming and helping themselves. The dogs just don't bother them at all
This poor little rose was planted this year. It's continuously got new growth but in a week or two. They come back and chomp it. It's like they know
And this is how they are getting in. When we built the big outdoor room part of the fence came down and we have been using the old pool fence to keep the dogs in. The whole fence is earmarked for replacing. But we have been waiting for more funds. You know how it is. With weddings and all.
So hopefully soon we will build the new fence and my poor little baby plants will have a chance to grow.
Naughty bunny. Keep it up and I'll make you into a stew!
