Mum, Dad and I had a very civilised excursion yesterday. We drove along the Western Explorer Road through some very wild scenery, all the way to Corinna, on the Pieman River.
We had a picnic lunch, took some photographs (in between heavy rain showers), waved to a group of tourists on motorbikes as they passed us several times and got a bit worried when we saw one of them standing on the side of the road. Another rider had come off his bike but luckily he was okay.
We also saw a wallaby and when we got to Corinna bumped into some family friends. We stopped for a spot of coffee from the thermos and some snacks before heading off again.
On the way back we went through Savage River and Waratah - I'd never been to either place before. Mum was a bit disappointed that the weather wasn't conducive to taking lots of photos, but it definitely added to the atmosphere.
If you get the chance, take the drive. It's well worth it. Don't forget to pack a picnic lunch!

Oh thank heavens it's school holidays - what a jam-packed first term that was! I'm feeling very grateful that I get to work with some wonderful people, but I'm also very grateful for this break. It has come at just the right time.
Wishing you all a lovely Easter long-weekend. Mine will be spent doing some photography and having some quality time with family. There will be chocolate and rest. All good things.
