Liffey Falls

Last Friday Chrish came down from Sydney to spend 10 days at 'home'. Before he came down he said he was keen to go for a walk at Liffey Falls, so we arranged to make it a bit of a day trip. Lucky for me it was during a school day and the boys were at school, so Kobe and I got to enjoy the trip on our own. We met Mum, Chrish, Nicki and Becky and the kids there.

Nicki is amazing with how she copes with three young kids - especially on a bush walk! Lincoln was such a good baby and slept in the pouch most of the way.

Three digital SLR cameras on a bush walk with beautiful scenery is not a good combination! What could've been a 45 minute walk ended up being about three hours as we stopped constantly to snap photos of anything and everything! We really do look like the paparrazzi!

Chrish cracked me up as he would disappear all the time and then reappear in these random places in the middle of the river, snapping photos.

Mum scared me when she decided to follow Chrish across a log. I remember yelling 'you will break your camera Mum!!', as I was more concerned about her camera than her falling in! (thanks for the photos from facebook Chrish!).

Chrish is getting very clever with his camera. I LOVE this one he took.

The kids were so great the whole time and just loved exploring and picking up things along the way.

Kobe had a moment, but looked so cute I just had to take a photo! :)

Along the way we saw lots of interesting and beautiful things. The girls thought these were 'fairy jelly beans'.

It's always exciting getting to the end and seeing the amazing falls. I could just sit there all day and look at them.

Chrish took of his shoes and went in near the falls for photos.

I didn't think much of it till I looked over and there he is actually IN the falls while his camera was off on the side taking photos with the timer!

We relaxed a bit (and Chrish dried off!) before we headed back up to the top.

It was such a beautiful day and so nice to go walking together at such a beautiful place. Eamon was all tuckered out by the end of it.

    We are so lucky to live in Tassie, because it is sooo beautiful, and you don't have to travel very far to see so many different places.
    Love Mum.

  9. Is photoshop getting a workout? I agree with Scarlett and the photo of Chrish in the waterfall.
