Today we headed out to Lake Leschenaultia. Was a mainly overcast day, but that can be just brilliant for a picnic because not too many other people go out for a picnic in the threat of rain!
Turned out that there was a "festival" on at the Lake. We hadn't seen any advertising about it in our web trawls searching where to go for a picnic. I felt bad for the event as it was a pretty crap turn out. About 30 people? not including the volunteers (which looked like equal number). BUT they did have free face painting and bouncy castle so all the kids (mine and my nieces) were very happy!
We were the first of our party to arrive and we managed to nab an excellent table hutchy thing by the water and away from the band set up.
Was a gorgeous day and wonderful to spend time with family :)
Here is a photo from Lake Leschenaultia.
|As you can see, the water level was a bit low, but the water quality seems pretty good (especially after the recent scare) and it is crystal clear - if freezing cold!|
All the kids had a good run around while I was walking around in awe of all the yummy fruit and veg (read her post on Food Forest concept) and the lovely ponds ... and well just all of it is so lovely and I am so completely JEALOUS!!!
I am also now completely hooked on Lemonade lemons!!!! and I have some gorgeous ?golden nugget pumpkins to add to tomorrow nights casserole! nom nom.
|All the Lemonade Lemons that I have left :( And the Golden Nugget Pumpkins.|
|My kids had their first Ferret Introduction|
|And they had a play with a Doggie.|
I realised today how much I miss my friends. Friends who understand you and know you and not judge you, but take you as you are.
I am lucky, not only in knowing that people out there like this exist, but to also be able to call them friends :)
Today has been a wonderful day!
