Well the heat has well and truly found us here in Batchelor so we were glad of some cool respite by visting the park.....more pic heavy!
Our first stop was the Magnetic Termite Mounds....astonishing things!
This one is over 50 years old.
From there off to Florence Falls....so pretty!
Loved this sweet little native bush just finishing its flowering.
We were really feeling the heat so we decided on a dip in Wangi Falls plunge pool. This spot was so beautiful!
Playing water nymph....the water was chilly and I loved it!
After lunch we visited Tolmer Falls...
Amazing rock formations all around here.
Look at the colours in this group....
The view from the top was spectacular!
Hot and bothered again we decided to risk life and limb and scramble over slippery rocks for a cool down at Buley Rock Hole.
Ahhhh! Then home in time for the bird feeding....these are Red Collared Lorikeets. I thought they were our Rainbows from home but they are completely different apparently.
They were everywhere along with galahs, cockatoos and some cheeky honeyeaters.
Yesterday we visited the Butterfly house but too quick for my camera.
Loved this beautiful Frangipani. We call them Singapore Frangipani but apparently they are no such thing. I have a white one at home.
That is finally it for this post folks....thanks for hanging in there.
Litchfield definitely exceeded expectations!
I love designing my own patterns which I have named Rag-tag Stitchin' designs. I design all kinds of stitcheries and applique for quilts etc. I love designing Christmas projects especially. My Husband and my Family and friends are the most important people in my life.
