The farm was beautiful despite being very chilly in the mornings at -3 degrees. The ground was covered in frost and the ponds and some parts of the rivers were iced over. The kids had fun cracking the ice on the fish pond in the morning. Being well rugged up was the key to staying warm, but we were always snuggly by the wood fires inside.
I went for several walks in the pine forest and scooted around the farm on the quad bikes to inspect the newborn calves. The Angus cows are really quite pretty animals.

From the debris we collected wood each evening and made a large camp fire to roast marshmallows. We also picnicked by fire and had dinner in large bowls.
I love the colour and the patterns of the mosses growing on the fallen pine trees.

Following the creek bed
and finding a wombat hole?
Lovely ghostly gums
Chasing this little bird along the fence line... until I saw the bulls in the paddock heading my way.
Trying to capture these guys on my camera.
I really do need to get a camera with a zoom lens.. then iId have a better photo of these red beauties.
Coco Black and dinner cooked for me - happy.
