Hamilton Downs Youth Camp – (2)

May 5th 2023 – a full moon arising. It was a beautiful night, the cloud didn’t hang around for very long so the sky was lit up with moonlight & many stars.

May 14th – We have now been here 2 weeks & have managed to do a few enjoyable walks, when we have clients depending on the group we usually only do a small walk ip Drover’s Hill, bit steep but not real long, when no clients we usually go for a few hours which we have managed to do the last few days. The flies are quite big in numbers but a small branch does the trick, there are quite a few cattle around so we have to expect to have flies. We have walked/staggered up some steep rocky hills so far without too many injuries so life is pretty good. We walked out along the creek yesterday & found a few small waterholes, not sure how long there will be water there for but one hole looked quite deep, I found quite a few fish, little fellows up to about 30cm long & heaps of tadpoles.

The wildflowers at the moment are beautiful, not sure if we will have much variety but the Yellow buttons & Califoria asters are divine.
