This morning we got up early and drove to Thirlmere Lakes National Park to do a barbecue breakfast and then a little bushwalking.

The weather was a little drizzly, which made it interesting, but the scenery was nice and the air was fresh.


My son was not a fan of the leeches.

Somehow they knew that, and went after him the most. He jogged and stamped his feet, even once we were back on the road.

Fortunately they didn’t really get him, just crawled on his shoe. But that was enough to freak the poor kid out.
