Over the Easter long weekend my wife and I with our friend Peter went down to my in-law’s holiday home at Tallong (it’s about a two and a half hour drive south of Sydney).
It’s a beautiful house on a hundred acres of mostly wild bushland over looking the cliffs that run along the Shoalhaven river. It’s quite the view in the morning. My in-laws even have a spotting scope set up at the window for watching the kangaroos and wallabies that often come by to graze.
On Saturday we went to Canberra to the folk festival and had a good time checking out the various acts and the people that they attract.
Although the folk festival has many traditional activities such as morris dancing and fiddling workshops there quite a few acts that are taking folk music into new territory.
On Sunday we intended to fly our kite but there wasn’t enough wind so we tried out our new water propelled rocket.
The pump that came with the rocket was a little too small and fragile to give what we thought was enough pressure so we hooked it up to an air compressor.
Much faster. Much better!
