Station country moments

by Cellobella on Thursday, July 17, 2008

We’ve just come back from four days on the station. Every time I go I wonder why it has taken me so long to go back.

This time it didn’t rain while I was there but the winter temperatures made walking a pleasure.

We taught the kids how to drive – Hugamuga driving by himself by the last day – and well. I love the fact that my city kids get the chance to practice driving on the station where there are no cars and just the odd bush to avoid.

I found it hard to cull the photos for this post, but if you’re really keen feel free to check out the set on Flickr.

Dad rigged up a mini-water trough for the birds and set it high so the roos don’t get all the water.
