Bright

Recently, my husband and I took a few days off and went camping at Bright, a small town in Victoria. We left the kids at home, one was working and the other said she would rather stay at home and paint the window frames than come with us. Actually she said she would rather do almost anything than come with us but the painting the window thing was was what we settled on. No, its not slave labour, she and a friend are painting the windows and we are paying.

It felt strange leaving without the kids but we quickly got over that and had a great time, just the two of us. We were a tad worried what the windows would look like when we got home.

We camped right on Morses Creek, a beautiful clear creek where you can see the fish sitting on the bottom. We visited the local attractions and rode our bikes along the rail trail. We did nothing much and had a great time.

And what did the paint job look like when we got home? Thankfully the girls did a great job.
