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!

Abbey has discovered that it's fun to walk by pushing this cart type thing in front of herself. We reckon' that it's pretty fun too - except when you close the front gate and she gets mad that you are preventing her from wandering down a busy road! Off to WA on Tuesday, will update when we get the chance.

Time for an Update

Phil has just completed a fauna survey at work - they didn't catch alot, but this marbled velvet gecko was pretty cool. The survey was at Hugh Gorge in the West Macs - pretty rugged but beautiful country. Pity the weather is starting to feel like summer already though! We are now only a couple of weeks from going on our holiday to Western Australia. Looking forward to a beer in Fremantle, walks through the forests in Pemberton, and tasting the wines of Margaret River. I sense a theme developing here... We will also catch up with plenty of family, take Abbey to pat some farm animals, play golf (Phil only) and hopefully drink plenty of coffee at some nice little cafes. Can't wait!!

Just thought I'd add a couple of photos to Abbey's 1st Birthday post below :) I had to add this photo because Abbey's expression is hilarious!! This is us enjoying morning tea out at Ormiston Gorge. Chelsea looks less than impressed!!
Dirt and Abbey are the bestest of friends

Proud as punch on her new little car... thanks Aunty Stace....!
