Day in the Hills

This is our day yesterday.  Firstly we went to Mt Lofty..... bloody freezing.... but great view even though it was very overcast.  

The creature being brave isn't a rat it is a bandicoot.   I heard rustling in the bushes and I was very surprised that it decided to come out and investigate us. I just had to try and stop the kids from making sudden moves and that sent him back to the bushes, but he kept coming out and we got heaps of photo's.  Don't know if he was hoping for some food, judging by his nose which was almost mole like I assume he eats bugs in the dirt. The crows were just as friendly. 

This is at the Mt Lofty Botanic Gardens.  We then headed to Waterfall Gully to see if the water was flowing and it was.

I was thinking I bet it was cold at Mt Lofty yesterday. It was cold enough here in the foothills!

It looks like everyone survived and had a great time.

Waterfall Gully - I had forgotten all about that. We are hoping to be in Adelaide for a few days next week so maybe we should take the boys to see it. Any good markets on next weekend?

You were very brave to go out in that weather. I don't think I have ever seen a bandicoot in the wild. See you later.
