All was well in tent city ....
To my surprise, we erected the tent with speed and precision for first timers!
(Well, Aaron and the girls did!)
I supervised and took photos! Phew - it was hard work!
But the finished product was very exciting:
Then the girls decided to chat to the locals to get a feel for their surroundings and what it had to offer:
They got along well with the locals - even the big ones!
Watch out for that bull on the right - he's a nasty character - very protective of his 32 heffas and calves!
Driving with the cows was interesting:
Don't get too close or they get a little agitated!
We slowly drove past them and gave them space.
But then Aaron decided he'd toot his horn at them to see what would happen!
We then had to drive a little faster - out of necessity!
"Get me outta here - quick!"
The scenery was gorgeous though.
High up on the hill - this was our view:
The first night was warm so needless to say the sleeping bags were not needed!
Aaron was too scared to have the doors open for fear of mozzies and creatures crawling through the screen in the middle of the night so we sweltered a little the first night.
The first night ended up being the last night as the next day we woke up to a HEAT WAVE!!
The temperature reached around 38 degrees - and that was in the shade!
We spent most of the day here ...
Ash looking for little fish and rocks!
The girls walking around the rock pools looking for crabs and fish!
Lauren enjoying the shallow water - Aaron in the "big pool" in the background!
As you can see, it was very relaxing and cool.
The rock pools were great. They found all sorts of things:
Then we had lunch at Berry at a little bakery that make THE BEST Custard Tarts!!! YUMMM!
Then we browsed the local shops.
They have the most quaint little shops in Berry - very unique.
Here's just one of the many available - it's full of cuckoo clocks and babushka dolls!
The girls loved it!! They were in there for ages looking at all the bits and pieces.
Then there's my favourite candle shop - Candleberries!
I'm on a first name basis with the owner! Love it!
Yes, there are a lot of cows in the Berry area!
And they're proud of it!
All in all, despite the heat and the early departure, we had such a great time!
We plan to do it again real soon!
