Singleton to Pittsworth

With heavy hearts, we said our farewells at Singleton. We will miss Narni terribly but will sure to be back one day.

We had originally planned to travel up the coast towards Brisbane but the weather dictated otherwise. After leaving Singleton, we passed through beautiful country on our way to Walcha. Although the sky was clouded, the beauty of the country still shone through. Many times we were sure we'd found ourselves on top of the world with stunning views.

The autumn colours in the trees was absolutely beautiful and not something we see here in Queensland.

At Walcha we took Nathan out to Apsley Falls, flowing well because of recent rains.

The thunder of the water as it crashed to the rocks below and echoed down the ravine was so awesome. I have only seen these falls twice, but they never disappoint.

We called in to the Australian Standing Stones at Glen Innes. The idea for them was born in Australia's BiCentennial Year and officially opened on 1st February 1992. Nathan was determined to remove the Excalibur embedded in the stone, but of course to no avail....he had fun trying though.

We arrived back at home on Good Friday and that evening it began to rain....perfect timing!! Our country is very wet...a wonderful sight. In a few weeks, the paddocks will be looking terrific and things will be more positive.

Hi Kerry, it's been a long time!!! I came across your blog through the 123 blog. I've been enjoying reading your blog and admiring your beautiful scrapbooking creations.

The countryside around New England is beautiful, especially in Autumn. It is something I miss. My family live in Glen Innes and it has its own charms.

I'm going to pop back from time to time. Take care, Marie
