|Mt Clunie from a knoll walk|
We have just returned home from a very peaceful and beautiful stay at the Mt Clunie Cabins near Woodenbong. Jim and Fran, a very generous, gentle couple, run this low impact, very natural little business with 2 huts surrounded by National Parks, rainforests and almost deafening bird calls.
Although I have always been interested in birds in a fairly general way, I could easily become a more serious twitcher especially after Jim lent me his fantastic binoculars. The cabin is stocked with bird identification books and magazines to help me work out what I was seeing. Think I still need a lot of help in this area.
As usual, I spent a lot of time with my art work while Jenny got a lot of her needlework done. So we didn't really get stuck into exploring all of the rainforest tracks on the property which adjoins World Heritage National parks but managed a few of the shorter ones. Mt Clunie National Park is closed to vehicles and must be one of the most quiet parks around. We didn't meet a soul! How special is that?

We will definitely be back to visit this awesome spot and its wonderful owners.- I forgot to mention the stars and ......the rather quaint gas lights in the cabins. (No power = no TV, radio but a lovely log fire as it was quite cold)
...............and all the beautiful rusty farm bits which I'll post later. Now that I'm mentally refreshed, I can get back to all the other things on my ever growing LIST. My problem is getting sidetracked and losing myself in my art. Not always a bad thing, especially for me.
