I got to resume my early morning walks, and the different views that went with it, my favourites are the dew covered spiderwebs, they are easy to spot when they glisten.
I have been having camera trouble lately, with both of my well loved cameras needing some R and R at the camera hospital before their 1st anniversary of living with me, I missed alot of perfect shots, and only managed these couple.
When we came out to play, we really came out to play! Kim suggested that we go mud sliding at cockpit waterfall with the kids, we had driven in to the reserve before, but not actually walked to the waterfall. We were well rewarded for doing so as it was beautiful. The goat trail that let us there was a touch precarious as we had a tight clasp onto our children's hands till we got to the top, but wisely ventured no further down.
Rob, a professional photographer here who owns a fantastic gallery across the road called 2899( Norfolk Island's postcode) was right at the bottom taking photos of the waterfall, so I cant wait to see how his photos turn out.
Brandt wished that he could climb down and have a swim in the pool under the waterfall, but was content to take the kids one at a time in a smaller pool further up the rocks.
Teddy wanted to go in first and loved it, Sienna will do anything that Teddy does, but found it a bit cool in the pool and clung to her Daddy like a baby possum.
When they were dry, both kids had another go at grass sliding down the hill on my boogy board, but the grass wasn't slippery enough to go really fast and there weren't any muddy tracks left by other kids.
Charles took baby Liam for his first go and wanted to take him right to the top of the hill, they compromised on half way, but stopped still on a patch of grass, so resorted to Kim pulling them down the hill.
We didn't get as dirty as we thought we would or go as fast as the boys would have liked, but it was still tonnes of fun to shake off any wet weather blues.
