Happy Birthday To Me!

For my last 20-something birthday Alec took me away for the weekend to stay in a river-side cabin at Turon Gates, about 4-5 hours hrs drive from Sydney.

After a long and somewhat dramatic drive there, we awoke the next morning surrounded by bushlands.

Our solar-powered cabin, right in the middle of a nature reserve.


Alec takes a look around.



This photo is begging for a funny caption. Pity I can't think of one!



Scenic bushlands and nature were all around.



It was awesome waking up every morning to look ut of the window at this river. The river was a major site during the gold rush and the remains from the gold prospectors can still be seen here. The river is crystal clear (and bloody cold!). In summer I can imagine it would be a great place to swim and canoe.



Ghost gums - everywhere!



Pretty! I loved how much wattle was everywhere - the bright yellow against olive green and red and brown dirt. So Australian!



Playing with my 50mm lens.



Very obliging boy.











So rugged and manly!



Who da man?



Cheesy! A happy photo on a happy day.
