The Five Lucky Ducks Mid-Winter Festival in Shannon NP

We headed inland a bit to Shannon National Park, home to some huge Karri trees. The campground had a water boiler, so we stoked the boiler and all had hot showers - was so lovely and hot.

Preparing the fire for our hot showers - yehhhhh
  We decided to get a fire going for the mid winter festival, so the boys collected the wood

Getting the fire going

Rossco cooked home-made pizzas in the camp oven...

Chorizo, mushroom and three cheese pizza
We had such a lovely mid winter festival, we had made paper lanterns and walked through the forest singing up a storm. As a special treat Ross lit a firework, only the firework was a bit better - longer and much louder than both of us had expected, lucky there was no one else around for miles - v exciting for the boys!!

getting excited about the Mid-Winter Festival - 2011

fires burning, fires burning, come nearer, come nearer, lets sing, lets sing, altogether, altogether ...
