When we arrived on Friday we decided to go for an 'explore' around the property but I ended up sliding down a hill in the mud so we had to go back to base to clean up! On cleaning up my shoes, Elaine discovered a leach - which promptly disappeared - so we didn't think too much more about it and set off to the town to have a look ! On driving down the road, I felt a squelch between my toes and stopped the car, only to find two leaches in between my toes ! Elaine had never encountered leaches before and was (vocally !) horrified ! She then found a leach in her shoe and later in the day we found one in Bombo's mouth - poor puppy ! They seemed to disappear after those few appearances but they were enough to put Elaine off walking in the grass around the property again !
Anyway, I digress ... it just so happened that Friday and Saturday were the dates for the annual Berry show. Country shows are .......click here for the best explanation. I must add that it had been pissing down for the previous week, it stopped on Friday but it was very boggy and muddy ... we have always wondered how our little white boys would cope with muddy towpaths, but after battling the Berry bog we realized that they will be fine!
I really enjoy watching the wood chopping events, it is amazing how the old boys generally win, this chap was in his 60s and he was on the biggest handicap of his group!This truck is the RM Williams mobile outfitters, the trailer opens out to become a fully functioning shop. RM Williams is the iconic bush outfitter supplying quality Australian products, but unfortunately more and more of the products are Made in China :-(
