We had a family road trip in the school holidays and spent a couple of days exploring Lakes Entrance.We did some bushwalking and enjoyed the views. The bush had a different smell, not the usual eucalypt scent, nor lemon scented gum. It took me a while to figure out that it was the native frangipani blooms ( I think thats what it was, it was in bloom everywhere!).
We took a drive north to see the mighty Snowy River. Somehow the song " Snowy River Roll" is still in my head - learnt in primary school in grade 5 with Mr Smith, written on paper, plastered on the wall above the blackboard we would spend the first 10 minutes at school every morning singing a range of folk songs/ songs from the ABC " sing" books.
And stanzas from " The man from snowy river" also came to mind, looking at the river and the hills and mountains nearby (also thanks to Mr Smith). Such a beautuful part of the country. We saw plenty of birds and wildlife too, more in the next post.
