Beautiful days ….

One of the biggest perks of staying on this station - it has TWO washing machines.  I've gone from a tiny twin tub to two full size machines ... and loving it :-)

One of the biggest perks of staying on this station – it has TWO washing machines. I’ve gone from a tiny twin tub to two full size machines … and loving it 🙂

The weather in the Pilbara has been amazing the last few days.  Warm sunny days and just a slight breeze.  When it’s so beautiful I’m always enticed to take the dogs for walks, get washing done, cook and clean!  I don’t generally like housework, but the gorgeous days just lifts your spirit and I seem to achieve so much more in a day as it gives you a spring in your step!

Yesterday morning while walking Jim (Ted was offered a walk first, but wouldn’t sit and kept jumping at me – so he got left behind – do you think he’ll behave next time? …. we’ll see).  Down at the lagoon was this eagle.  They are always such a brilliant sight and watching them soar through the air amazing.

Heading off ...

The wild flowers here are coming out in force.  I love it when I find them and they seem to be around most corners lately.

The kids are enjoying the weather too.  Craft was had this morning for the youngsters and they made trains – they even got to paint them.

A train!

My, you live in a beautiful part of the country. I have travelled to Aus many times and seen a huge part of the Centre, north, south and eastern bits, but not to Western Australia. You photos are lovely. Perhaps I will get to see the Western parts one day. I love Aus!
