My quilting thoughts and inspirations sprinkled with a glimpse of life down on the farm

Still in Australia

It's a while since I updated my weekly walking tally but it doesn't mean I haven't been walking.
I found a walking buddy at Scrub Stitching. Lea and I walked every morning before breakfast.
It was a great chance to see, and listen to, the Galahs-
And the Kangaroos. We saw them most mornings but I struggled to get decent photos-
She got a beauty though-

Once Scrub Stitching finshed, Kiwikid Sue and I had a nice meandering drive back down to Tullamarine Airport at Melbourne. We took an extra day so that we could visit the Dubbo Zoo. We walked 10kms that day!
I hadn't seen a Tasmanian Devil before so was intrigued to see this legendary creature. It was more interested in seeing if we had any treats for him, than being scary!

And we also clocked up a few kms in Wagga wagga exploring the botanic gardens and their street art-
A wombat at the Wagga Wagga zoo-
Bronze sculptures-
The Jolly Swagman-
And to finish my two weeks in Australia, a couple of selfies-
Goodbyes at the airport-

Already we're looking forward to next year's Scrub Stitching and wondering what routes we will take.

'til next time,
happy stitches,
