Mt Bold

Today was a public holiday here in South Australia. Labour day, which commemorates the introduction of the 40 hour week I think. (Hey! You don't have to know what they are for to enjoy them!) We decided to go to the Mount Bold Reservoir and take a look around. We haven't been there for such a long time. (I seem to remember sitting in the car breastfeeding some child last time we were there and I haven't done that for a very long time now!) It was a favourite trip of ours because the reservoir is quite close to the town of Clarendon which has a delicious bakery. So, on the way we stopped at the Clarendon Bakery. Yum!

The reservoir

The swing bridge

Last time we were there these steep stairs allowed you to access the swing bridge from the carpark side. Not any more!

The blocked off stairway

The dam wall.

Flowers beside the reservoir.

The bold amongst us walked over the swing bridge. The scardy cats stayed far away from the swing bridge and took photos of flowers. Aren't they pretty flowers? When we came home I actually got into the sewing room and sewed. I didn't manage to finish anything though. Maybe tomorrow!

Nothing better than a great outing with the family, do you all fit in the car?
Enjoy your time sewing is much more important than finishing anything!

I should take a trip out there some time (while the water level is still high) as it is just round the corner (so to speak) from where we live. It looks like it would be a nice afternoon outing, especially with the bakery stop.

We never seem to get down South . That's what happens when you're on the other side of town. But for a good bakery I'll travel.

Mount Bold looks pretty. Sounds like fun was had by all. Cant wait to see what was sewn/sewed/made.

Nice pics...I would have been taking pics of flowers as well....swing bridges are not on my "this will be fun to do" list! The weather was awesome over the weekend wasn't it! Now I just need to adjust to DS time and it will be all good!
