Teddy Bear Walk

Next to a caravan park we stayed in near Karuah was this easy bushwalk.
With some unexpected sculptures
This one had a sign saying "Orphans, please help"
The bear at the front of this bike race has a star picket through his eye

Madison found it too disturbing and couldn't look any longer.
There were heaps of them.

Mungo Brush Road

On the way from Tea Gardens to the caravan park at Myall Lakes we stopped along Mungo Brush Road. It was a far distance to the beach over sand dunes.  

But once we arrived at the water it was worth it. Although not warm enough for swimming the kids managed to get fairly wet. The water was a gorgeous colour and we kept an eye out for dolphins and whales but no luck!

Jane, Madison & Sam went on a 2 hour trail ride.

Trotting was a bit scary for Sam so we walked the last part home.

Glenworth Valley

During the last school holidays we went on our first camping trip with the kids. We headed north and our first stop was Glenworth Valley.

Madison found a quiet spot to read.

Happy Birthday Twofruits!

Yes it is hard to believe, but Twofruits has been running for 10 years today. Way back in 2006 when we were expecting our first child we started up the blog and were posting every other day. Now we are lucky to do more than one a month, but the memories are all still there.

I'd like to thank my wife and children for their unending contribution and support and of course Google who without their help, this never would have happened.
