Took myself on a road trip to Mudgee for 5 days, via Gunnedah. I wanted to photograph the statue of Dorothea Mackellar the Australian poet …. one of very few monuments honoring an Australian woman. It is a very beautiful statue as it depicts the horse and rider resting while the horse drinks from a stream. There are several of Dorothea’s poems on plaques dotted among native grasses and flowers along the pathway that leads to the statue.
I attended a mates Scything Workshop weekend, camping and eating amazing food prepared by another great mate, Christine Corner of Crave Natural. Got a chance to do some blacksmithing, hand shearing and wood work on a shaving horse.
