Yesterday was a day for swapping. Swapping my normal work routine for a day out. Tim is on holiday from work afterall. We dropped the girls off at school and took a scenic drive to Murrurundi to do some bushwalking and geocaching. Murrurundi is the town I would be living in if I was a risk taker and bought my dream house (one of them anyway) a few years ago.
Paradise Park is tucked away off the highway and is a real surprise if you haven't been there before.The walking track isn't very long but it is definitely not a stroll.
It starts off fairly gently but the gradient increases quickly. The walk is graded as a 3 or 4 which means that some bushwalking/ hiking experience might be an advantage or necessary. I agree because it is a bit slippery and steep.
Willow Tree Inn. It is really nicely decorated, a little bit pricey and very quiet on a Tuesday. Apparently on the weekends it is hard to get a table. I had lamb shanks which were lovely.Today, I swapped back to real life and had a Vegemite sandwich for lunch.
It's also a good day for swapping parcels. This package of goodies is what I am sending to Simone in Lisa's stationery swap. I do hope Simone likes the things I have sent her.
|Hermit crab with no shell. YUCK!!|
And the final word on swapping goes to Hope's crab. He/ she is shell swapping and unfortunately I found him in the tank sans shell. The crabs' creepiness has reached a whole new level. happily I can say it has found a shell it likes and is for the most part hidden away. They give me the shivers.
