Meet my new friend - Pancakes. He's SOOOOOOOO beautiful. I fell in love with him straight away, and if I could have stuffed him in my scrapping bag and brought him home with me, I would have. He spent quite a bit of time enjoying my pats - he was so patient. (-: And did I mention soft and cuddly?
Look at those big brown eyes. How can you resist that? He has a buddy called "black rabbit" but he is not friendly like Pancakes. So I just had to lavish all my affection on poor little Pancakes. Somehow, I don't think he minded one little bit. (-:
For some bizarre reason, my photos have uploaded in the wrong order, and I have no idea of how to swap them around. This photo was taken today, just down the road from my house, at about 5:30pm. This little koala was sound asleep, and absolutely refused to cooperate, and raise her head for a photo. Even begging didn't work. (-: She seems to be in fairly good condition, and I don't think she was injured (although she was down quite low in the tree). I will check the trees in the area tomorrow to see if she is still there or has moved on.
Now, back to Lake Keepit at Gunnedah. These photos are various shots from around the camp grounds. this is the upstairs dining hall (and the place where all the scrapbooking classes were held). So I got to walk up and down those stairs quite a bit. (But I just kept reminding myself it was good exercise). Bahahahaha!!! No, I don't feel gulity one bit for not going to the gym all week, when I have wonderful stairs to help keep me in shape.
Here's a small portion of the lake. It was huge, and beautiful, and quiet, and serene. There were kangaroos hopping around int he evenings, and beautiful native parrots feeding on the lawns. And it was one of the best scrapbooking retreats I have ever been to. It was immaculately clean, freshly painted, and the food was amazing (and endless). The group of ladies were wonderful, and we had some great challenges and prizes. I will definitely go back next year if possible. It was so worth the 1500km round trip that I drove.
Here's the pool, overlooking the lake.
