10th&11th July + 12th + 13th & 14th

Monday – played a round of golf at Atherton. Managed to walk half of the course – where it was flat!!! Lovely course – horrible greens – couldn’t read them!!! Doesn’t bode well for Thursday & Friday

Tuesday – walking and touring the area. First stop the local dairy for cheese & chocolate tasting – yummy. Stopped at Curtain fig tree IMG_4462IMG_4468IMG_4469Then on to Yungaburra.Beautiful hanging baskets all through town.IMG_4471Asked in information centre about bird noise we heard. They recommended an app called Aus Birds which  you can use to determine different calls. Have bought it and will now hopefully be expert!!!!!IMG_4474This is Lake Eacham. Then onto Lake Barrine for a delicious lunch. Can really recommend the food & coffeeIMG_4476IMG_4479A Sunbird nest right beside me on the cafe deck.

12th July

Wet cold day drove to Milla Millaa. Really thought we were mad even thinking about playing golf. In a very wet state I managed runner up in the stableford and a nearest the pin.

13th & 14th July

Played vets tournament at Atherton. Had to be well wrapped up from the cold and the rain.

I managed to win the stableford with 72 for the 36 holes and the net for both days. Feeling rather chuffed.

Ollie didn’t fare so well on any of the days but we had fun
