THE YAAN.

Today I went to the PROMISED LAND, out on the NEVER NEVER CREEK in the GLENIFFER VALLEY to swim in the dappled light and chilled water.  Maybe a 1/2 hour drive from Home.

Its been a hot day. The kind of day which suits me very well. The local community radio station 2BBB was playing SOUTH PACIFIC AND I was singing along on my way up to meet the Cheery Redhead and her Mum, Kati B. The water out on the Never Never is cold and clear and despite the rocky bottom of the Creek, it was one delightful day. A corny word but APT.
