Last month, we headed out for a few days R and R with our caravan (on it's maiden trip with us) .We met up with my brother and sister in law and set up camp not far from the Warrumbungle mountains(about an hour and a half from our place.)
We set up camp and within minutes my husband and brother discovered we had a friend in the old shed beside us. It was a beautiful carpet snake,although i am not a snake lover I could see her beauty and we agreed to leave her alone, and hoped she would leave us alone. I have to admit though I did enter the outside bathroom with trepidation in the middle of the night and had a good scout around  with the light   to make sure she wasn't lurking around up in the rafters.
We had a good spot, light a good fire(luckily it rained after we arrived and were able to light the fire as until then we thought it was too dry)
My brother had bought his camp ovens and we had a lovely dinner of lamb stew and damper.There Was  even left over stew  to have on toast the next morning.
We love to sit around a good fire and relax,tell stories,eat and have a few drinks.

Looking towards the Warrumbungle mountains  ,we were fortunate to see a wonderful sunset with Mt Exmouth in the distance.

We had a lovely couple of days, and the wildlife was abundant, we found a very friendly frilled neck lizard,a pair of top not pigeons with their mum in the nest and a large group of kangaroos happily grazing in a nearby paddock.

We thoroughly enjoyed our little excursion and hope to do many more in the future. Our little  caravan is wonderful and will be truly loved,it previously belonged to our lovely uncle who passed away, and it was offered to us to purchase it.We will always have him with us on our travels.
So until the next adventure, whether it be here,at the farm or on the road, we wish you well,
Jane .
