Another Break from Routine

We had a long weekend here in Victoria so we headed off to our favourite camping destination- the Victorian High Country. The weather was perfect even though it was colder at night and the days were sunny and ideal for 4 WDriving along the bush tracks. There are many huts built in this area for the cattlemen to use as refuge when they were working their cattle during the winter months.
You can even get snow up here in summer so the huts would have given refuge to many cattlemen over the years. Some have been burnt down during the bush fire season but the local 4 WD clubs have rebuilt most of them so their history isn't lost.
Hope you all had a good weekend too. Before we left, I sent off a 15 kg box of quilts, blankets and knitted garments for the Melbourne Homeless Connect Day so now it's time to get busy on filling another box of donations.
Hugs, Jan Mac
