Another firewood day.....

Recommended Posts

Headed off this morning for our sixth trip of this season - and why not when the weather looks like this - perfect, and not too hot:

Passed a bit of 'road art' on the way - this was created as a tribute to Mick Jagger and The Rolling Stones, and there is a geo-cache there, which we have done:

Into our designated firewood collection area. Sorry not very good focus, it was a bit bumpy:

Nothing special in the flora - just the usual subjects doing their best to hang in there after our harsh Summer:

We take a 'half way break', which consists of this - and, you'll notice K&B get a treat too!:

The girls absolutely love this activity and are constantly 'on watch':

No wonder they like this area - look at the track sign, we came off Dog Leg Track, on to Little Bulldog track!:

Heading home we can see how dry everywhere looks:

This is what we have collected so far, a triple layer pile, about 6 tons in six visits:

And this is what we like - a nice mix of woods, Ironbark and Yellow Box today:

Guess when our cooler weather does arrive we will happily be 'logon on' all Winter!

You have been busy again Dee.  That tongue on the tree is unusual.

Thank you Kev, Jacqui & Rick - have not been able to reply due to our many hours of power outage. We have been out again and got even more wood - do it while you can is our motto!

Jacqui, the guy who does these weird 'road art' things is very clever, and they always have a fun element, either in the title, or representation of some specific thing, and we always enjoy seeing them.

Rick, this is what it looked like yesterday, but very welcome - we got a whole 9ml of rain! We only need another 100ml to bring us up to what we normally average by now:

A great little slice of life in Oz - I just love the tree with the tongue!
