Meow's Favourite Pictures

Just a bunch of pictures, which I absolutely love, and would like to share with you ....


In June 2006 we went for a day drive to Portsea, about an hour's drive from Melbourne. On the way home, we stopped briefly in Mornington. This photo was taken from above the Mornington Marina ... that's the Melbourne skyline in the distance. It was a cold, windy day, and it was mid afternoon.

In 2003 we had a 3 week trip to Queensland. Whilst there we drove along the beach near Rainbow Beach. This photo was taken at the Coloured Sands ... how big is this sand-hill !! It was an amazing drive along the sand. It was interesting how many others were driving along at the same time ... we almost needed traffic lights !!

When Lake Eildon was made back in the 1950s, farms and properties were flooded. When the lake levels drop, some of these structures (if they are still standing) appear. This one is at Fraser National Park, and was taken about 8 or 9 years ago. I think it has collapsed since then, as it has been covered and uncovered by water a few times since then. It is really eerie.

I had a little lamb when I was a little girl, and it loved nibbling at my clothes !! I think I was about 3 in this photos. It was taken in the backyard where I grew up in Blackburn, Victoria.

Correllas flying over the Murray River, near Cobram, in March 2006. I just love the amazing blue skies we have over here in Australia ... just beautiful.

Chicky swimming in the Murray River, near Cobram, in March 2006. She was swimming against the current, which was really quite difficult, as the current can be very strong.

We went camping on the Murray River, near Cobram, in March 2006. I just love the stillness of the river, allowing for the lovely mirroring of the trees on the other side, and the glorious blue sky.

A bee-ootiful flower, with a buzzing bee, taken in the Royal Melbourne Botanical Gardens in November 2005.

This photo was taken in June 2005 (our Winter) whilst on a camping trip in the region of Yarrawonga ... the area was called Dead River Beach, on the Murray River. It was early in the morning, the sun was coming up, and the mist on the river was just beautiful. I just love this part of the world, it is one of my favourite places.

This photo was taken in June 2005, from the window of our car, on the way home from Bonnie Doon. It is of a tree (obviously !) in the middle of a vineyard, in the Dixons Creek area near Yarra Glen. I just loved the sun rays, or whatever it is, beaming down on the naked tree.

Whilst on our last houseboat holiday, we were parked in a beautiful spot along the river. This is a little creek, off the Murray River, which sort of went round in a circle, coming out a little bit further upstream. The guys mucked around, doing a time trial on a Jetski ... it looked mighty dangerous, with all the logs and stuff sticking out. Fortunately nobody was hurt, or even fell off. They had fun. I just thought it was a really pretty photo opportunity.

We used to go on a houseboat holiday every March/April, hiring the houseboats from Renmark in South Australia, and spending 7 to 10 days cruising the Murray River. There were usually around 30 of us, on 3 or 4 houseboats ... it was great fun. This is a photo of the last boat we hired ... a tiny one, just for the 3 of us. Beside it is our jetboat. This photo was from our last trip in 1994.
