August 16th...DAY 61

Ovens Valley wattle at 'Kyamba'

Luckily the weather has stayed fine for our trip through southern NSW. Wonderful crops and farmlands. Some sheep at last and only a very few cattle. The views were dominated by green and yellow..either wattle in bloom or canola in bloom. Australia's colours before our eyes.

EC travelled quite a bit more swiftly on the better highway maybe the home run was faster as well. The last sandwich lunch was eaten near Beechworth so our arrival in Milawa was early afternoon. It is always fun to check your home and garden on return. Spring has brought out some flowers and my lawn has been mown so 'Kyamba' gave a great welcome. The downside..frosts have damaged some plants and the rabbits have been enjoying the carrot patch.

Eucalyptus Leucoxylon in my garden

Cootamundra Wattle grows well at Milawa

Eucalyptus crenulata great for dyeing fabric!

We are both very pleased to be home but Safari 2014 has been successful, enjoyable and good fun. We were away for 8 weeks and 5 days which included only one damp day. Most importantly we have enjoyed good health while on the road.

With luck John will develop a map of our track but this will be added later.
