Well we have been back in Stanthorpe for a week now and back at work thinning apples for 4 days.
Thinning must be one of the most boring jobs on planet earth but we don’t mind it. We get into a really good routine where we work 6 days a week with Sundays off which is today..hooray 🤩🤩 We also manage to have a little power nap under the apple trees after lunch which is always rewarding, so peaceful just listening to the birds and the wind through the trees.
We will be doing this now till the end of January, then we will be picking the apples which is much more fun but longer hours.

We will try our best to visit the creek on our Sundays off as it’s teeming with birdlife at the moment, it’s probably one of the few places around with a good water supply so we are just praying for some rain. Please enjoy the pics and I took a small video of the creek.
Bye for now, Steph and Anthony.

Well…Surprise..Surprise, still no polish on the van. The Showgrounds here at Toowoomba are very open and it’s blowing a gale. This morning we woke to the dreaded Drizzle plus it’s so much cooler here than on the coast. We were deciding what we were going to do for the day and Voila……the sun started peeking out just a little bit 🤩🤩
So we had to make an executive decision,,, off to Redwood Park we went.
It’s about a 20 minute drive back down the range so we didn’t want to waste our time if it was going to be raining.
We have never seen the park so dry, and were very worried about the wildlife there, as the little creek that we thought was maybe spring fed had also dried up, and has been for quite some time.
We didn’t hear much birdlife either, but as we came past the picnic area we saw a couple of flowering trees….and lots of bird activity around them.
Thank god the little birdies have got something to eat.
The first bird Anthony spotted was the Regent Bowerbird, we just couldn’t believe our luck, and feeding on the nectar of this beautiful flowering type of Coral Tree. Lucky Lucky us 😃😃
