Welcome to our blog

We both live at Simpsons Gap in the West Macdonnell National Park, Central Australia, the best spot in the NT! Our blog is for friends and family to see how we are going, and to share in what we have been up to throughout the year. Please leave us a comment, and we hope you enjoy!

It's Raining Cats & Dogs (well, mainly dogs)

I just got back from Finke Gorge National Park, after we were washed out due to some heavy rain. It wasn't all bad however, as you can see from the pics below, with waterfalls everywhere and the odd bit of flooded road for our driving entertainment (yes, that is a road, not the Finke River!). Our newest family member Lucy also seems to enjoy the muddy conditions.

Kylie's Mum will be here for Easter which we are both looking forward to. Hopefully the rain will have gone away by then Sue (it is only 21 degrees today!).
See you all down the road, Phil & Kylie.

Say hello to Lucy

Well, we had an unexpected guest arrive on our door step last week, who we have named Lucy. She is Harry's new best friend (we had talked about getting him a mate for a while), and they seem to be getting along pretty well. My first reaction was to get the .22, but she was in really good nic, so we both went soft and have decided to keep her on (for a trial period of 10 to 15 years!). We also went to Ellery on the weekend - pretty hot, but always a good view. Not much else has been happening that I can think of right now, so we will catch you all later!
