Sunday driving

Hub and I are not in the fittest of condition at the moment so instead of going off on bushwalking adventures we have to content ourselves with that great Aussie tradition - a sedate Sunday drive!

 This week our wheels led us to a little-known little National Park south-west of Sydney - Thirlmere Lakes.

 Sadly due to the prolonged drought in this part of the world the lakes are a bit short of water!
I'm glad we didnt take the canoes!

There are many signs about the dangers of mud near the lake. As far as we could see the lake was mud!
 But wait! - is that water?

 The lakes are a haven for birds and wildlife - but I think most of them had flown the coop!

We found bugs - 

 and leaves -

 and evidence of wombats -

At least it was very quiet - apart from the unregistered trail bikes, there is a nice little walking loop aroud the lakes and if the water situation improves, we'll be back!

How was your weekend?
