A special weekend with Ellie

Since her brother came to the gem fields for the July school holidays, we had promised Ellie a special three-day weekend away. A pupil free day provided the perfect opportunity. Our first stop was the rest area at Ravensbourne. This giant worm was found in a bit of an explore after breakfast.

The main destination for the weekend was Somerset Dam. It turned out to be great weather for kayaking, and after being a passenger for a while Ellie decided it was her turn to paddle. We called her Captain Zig Zag, but she did a great job!

We saw a pheasant coucal, invented a new dessert - The Taj Special, had perfect morning tea marshmallows and spent Sunday afternoon at the mountain cousins where we learnt about bee keeping.
