Just returned from a few days in the country. We had a great time with friends and perfect weather too. Our other friends the kangaroos came down to the creek each evening to feed on the grass. This old pepper tree was so gnarled , I had to take a pic of it. One of the days was spent at the Chinese" Awakening of the lion " festival in Bendigo. We really enjoyed the Blues festival too. It was a great atmosphere with people dancing in the street.
