Usually at Easter time I don’t go away with the masses for the four days. Last weekend we went to some friends holiday home for the Sunday night. We stayed about one day overall and it was lovely just to do that one day.
Their house is near Lake Albert at Meningie. Lake Albert’s water used to go all the way to the reeds you can see in the photo below. Now, due to the drought the water levels have gone right down.
We took our chairs and a couple of drinks to the shore level and sat down in readiness for the sunset.
The boys went for a swim in the water.
I noticed this rusted out 44 gallon drum and couldn’t resist taking a photo of it as the setting sun shone. This drum had rusted out because it used to be submerged in water. We also found a couple of empty beer bottles.
Who can resist having a mud fight?
The result of the mud fight.
And when some has a new camera (ie me) sometimes people can’t resist having a go with it so I end up in a shot. I’m the one standing up at the back.
And I love this photo of JJ and his mate. JJ’s on the left.
I managed to get the sun just as it disappeared. Ever notice how quickly this actually happens? If you look away for a moment, it’s snuck down behind the horizon all ready to greet our northern hemisphere friends for their morning.

“And where, in all this beauty, was Monty?” said my husband as he looked over my shoulder.
We now have a Jack and I’m working on getting pictures up. Mislaid my camera since I got back from Amsterdam a couple of weeks ago – must be here somewhere but …
Without seeing his size he looks like a Jack Russell but he’s actually an odd mixture of (maybe, possibly) German Shepherd, greyhound, whippet or a more exotic hound like a Borzoi, and collie. Large, loving and needs masses of exercise – good for me as I am supposed to be walking 2 miles every day!
Hazel, Unfortunately Monty was at home. Molly and Monty don’t get on – they just growl and fight with each other. Molly’s got some issues from her previous owners I think. We all thought it best if Monty stay home this time. It felt weird going away without her.
Sounds like you’ll be busy with your new dog. Can’t wait to see photos.

Those sunset colours are absolutely gorgeous 🙂
That looks absolutley divine, what a great way to relax. I want to go now!
Me too. I want to go back. It beats being at work involved in the every day drudge.
