Aug 4, 2019 - Jondaryan

An absolutely beautiful winters day. We decided to take a drive through the farmlands to see the Cooby Creek Reserve, which actually holds the water supply for Toowoomba. The reality of the drought was again very prevalent. Very unfortunately the main part of the dam was closed for some inexplicable reason, however the section at the dam wall picnic areas was open and beautifully maintained. The dam level is very low. We found a table under the trees for a spot of picnic lunch, where we were joined on the table by a very tame kookaburra,...

Set off from home at about 7:30 this morning and stopped in Kilcoy for a bowl of cereal and a cup of coffee.

Wet, Wet, Wet!!! The rain started before we went to bed and remained fairly steady overnight. The waterhole definitely had a bit more water in it this morning. We got ourselves organised quite early and were on the road just after 8.30am. We were lucky that we were parked predominantly on gravel rather than the dirt roads we have been on lately as we skidded a bit getting back onto the bitumen and the caravan left quite deep ruts in the mud! The rain wasn’t particularly heavy whilst we were on the road this morning, which was just as well,...
