Getting back to nature


While our hubbies were busy doing nerdy things today, Barb and I joined Dad and the kids for a stroll around Mundaring Weir. The Weir is about 15ish kms from me and is a favourite picnic spot near Mundaring. I took some pics while I was there, and Boo will be delighted to see that not all the kangaroos around here are dead on the side of the road.

The view through the trees

Chiara, Darcie, Me and Will, Barb and Caleb

Darcie, ever the poser!

You can't really tell here, but this mummy roo has a joey in her pouch

Three of the ten or so roos that were in the area grazing

Also, I went to a shop called Red Stripe Clothing today in Northbridge which is Perth's own Goth shop, a little like Electric Cabaret, minus the pirates. I went in search of boots and I've ordered some in, so it will be a couple of weeks before I can get you all photo's. However, a heads up to Boo and Mouse. When you come to visit me, bring lots of money! The shoes there are so cheap! They don't have New Rocks, but a very similar brand from the US, my boots only cost $190 AUD. And Boo, you know the shoes you love with the star through the sole? They have about ten different types of them there and they're only $80 AUD. It's just a wonderful shop! redstripclothing.com is the url if you want to have a looksie.

Oh, and finally, because I finally got a photo, here's Barb with her shaved head. It's grown back a lot in the four weeks since she shaved it for Shave For a Cure, but you'll get the drift.

One of these days I'll get to see kangaroos roaming around in the wilderness. One of these days.
