"Open the 6th picture folder on your computer, open the 6th photo and blog it. Write something about it."

I have two different picture folders so here are the 6th and the 6th of both of them.

The picture above was taken during a bush walk in Taggerty. I believe this whole area is burnt out now...... ; ( sob sob
Although it was a short holiday I have many fond memories. Moo was almost 5 months old and we stayed in the caravan park with the in-laws. We had lunch at the bakery in Alexandra. Browsed the second hand book store. Went walking. Visited friends who have an amazing view of the Cathedral ranges from their outdoor toilet (that doesn't have a door so you can enjoy the scenery.....)
We took Moo for her first trip to Marysville where she enjoyed Steavenson falls. She was mesmorised as a matter of fact. She's been back there a few times and every time I love to see the look of wonderment on her little face. Although, she's getting a bit heavy to carry to the top!
We had afternoon tea at the bakery on the corner. Browsed the lolly shop with Moo asleep in the hug-a-bub and stocked up on things good and sweet. Wandered up and down the street and drank a coffee in Gallipoli park. Then we drove up to Lake Mountain and Moo saw snow for the first time - even though it was late September.
Remembering this particular holiday upsets me right now. I REALLY love going up there. Last year Hubby and I spent our anniversary at Marylands hotel and now it's gone...... The lolly shop is gone. The bush is gone. And I don't even want to think about what else is missing......
But, if you look carefully you can see that the photo is of a fern shoot. The bush behind it is brown but this little shoot is green and rising towards the sun.

The picture below is Moo looking very surprised! I find it hard to delete any photos unless they are out of focus or make me look ugly (he he he) so although it isn't frame worthy it still sits undeleted on my computer.....

What a cute photo of Moo!

I love the picture of your fern. We were also in Marysville not 5 months ago - so friendly, welcoming and pretty. Its very distressing to think about the terrible losses there.
