adventuring part 2

I really tend to forget
that these beautiful, amazing places
are right at our doorstep...
so for our Monday drive...
(we can't get away on weekends)
we hop in the car and drive, drive, drive...
as we are making our way around several winding dirt tracks...
my husband informs me that "the old blokes"
say that there is a white magpie
that lives around the next bend...
and can you believe our luck
there it is sitting on the fence on the very corner...
as we slow to a stop i whip the camera out
and of course it jumps from it's perch
but still in sight and zoom then snap
we get a pic of the very bird...
it doesn't look like a old bird and we think there must be
a family of them that nest in that very area
that some come out as "white"
still we are certain this is a very rare site...

we get to our destination...
Wallerbadah rock...
the second largest monolithic rock in Australia
Ayres rock being the largest of course...
you can't drive any closer than this as there are locked gates etc...
but it was amazing to see...
and really a stones throw away from home...
so what will our next Leyland adventure be...
well we will have to wait till our next "Monday drive"

now on another exciting note...
Betty jo
just messaged me with great news...
she spotted my "auntycookie" doll
here on CUTEABLE
Amazing i can hardly believe it...
and still in shock that they picked my picture
of her for their site...
a big thankyou to cuteable...
