Buzz buzzing around in Basil..........








After a night in Kurow we travelled to Omarama, I wanted to show Warren the "Clay Cliffs".
I have been a few times on photographic expeditions and have been effected by the hunting beauty and airiness of a place that feels like it holds stories from the past.
Unfortunately the weather came in so stormy and it was horribly cold, wet and windy.
It was a case of running in snapping a few pics and get out before we got stuck there in Basil.
As you can see I look frozen, oh well another time.
Then it was a case of the weather chasing us, every stop we went to it came in, even snow flurries again. We have ended up in Fairlie, a few stops past in planned route.
It has paid off as today was just stunning. 
We have just been and had the most yummy wood-fired pizza at Poppa-G's here in Fairlie, after a two hour walk, just perfect.


Poppets we have been getting slammed with spam comments so we have been adjusting the settings,

Thank you for all the lovely comments about the trip, it has been wonderful to know you are traveling with us. Sending a very big furry squirrel hug, Basil Hug and Seymour Hug!!!!

  7. You do look a bit cold, I'm not surprised you had to dash back to your squirrel nest! What beautiful cliffs though - they don't quite look real.
