Welcome back to the first post for 2020!
We would like to wish you a Happy New Year and nothing but the best for 2020.
Well.... we managed a break over Christmas, packing up our camper and heading out west. Crikey, it was so hot and dry. Even in the shade, the metal on the trailer was hot to touch. Not only that, but there were bushfires everywhere where station owners were back burning or the National parks was ablaze. It made it almost impossible to sleep at night. The cold night air made all this smoke settle down into the valleys and along the rivers and all you could smell was smoke, let alone see 100 ft.
We then decided to climb a small hill to take in the views, but all you could see was bushfires or the smoke from such for miles all around us. Anyway, even though we we're camped beside a river, we decided in the end it was time to head home and do a few small road trips instead.
No doubt we’ve all seen the news and the bushfires down south. Crikey, what a tough start for so many people who were and still are being affected by these bush fires in so many parts of our country and our thoughts are with them. We cannot comprehend what these people must be going through. Hopefully the rains will come soon and there will be an end to the fires.
