Our last day in Beechworth was a good day. No more excitement, thank goodness but a good day none the less. Dad went to listen to some music at a folk festival in a nearby town called Yackandanda (funny name, aye?) Mum and I went with him the day before but we were musiced out so he went by himself while Mum and I went for a big walk in the bush around Yack. We followed a small track down to a beautiful little river that was the site of a gold rush many, many years ago. We found this beautiful little gorge that was dug out of the granite by the gold rush blokes. It was all done by pick and shovel …. no machines in those days and it was fascinating to see and think about what it must have been like all those years ago. I had a great time. Mum was a bit worried that we might see Roos and I might take off but all was good. I behaved myself beautifully. There were some great smells and I did get a bit excited from time to time but my straight jacket is really doing a good job. Mum did relax and put me on my stretchy lead so I could really have a good old fossick around. Bit like the gold rush blokes, aye??
|This is the main street of Yackandanda during the festival. It's a bit mad!!|
|Something caught my eye .... was it a roo?|
|The gorge the prospectors dug out with pick and shovel.|
|How far is this walk????|
|Ahhhhhhhhh! Pretty and I'm thirsty.|
|Drink time .... I wanted a swim but Mum wouldn't let me.|
We found the BEST dog park. Crikey it was good. There were heaps of dogs and I had the best time. I got to run with a kelpie and ANOTHER whippet. They couldn’t catch me …. Not even the whippet!! I ran so much I got VERY tired. Mum reckons I never know when I’ve had enough. She had to stop me running and make me have a big rest. I did rest for a little while but only a little while.
|Crikey this was a fun park!!|
After dog park we walked and walked. Melbourne is nice for a big city. Tomorrow we are going to explore the botanical gardens and the heart of the City. Don’t know how that will go. Driving around the suburbs was a bit of a challenge for Dad. Don’t know how he’ll go in the heart of town. S’pose we’ll just park somewhere and walk and knowing Mum …. We’ll walk AND walk AND walk AND walk. We drove and walked all day today. S’pose we’ll walk all day tomorrow too. I’m exhausted by nightime. What with my big runs in the dog parks and then Mum’s walks . I sleep like a log.
Once again …. Thankyou all so much for the pressies and congratulations. You blokes and Sheila’s are the BEST. Thankyou!!!!!!
Wanna run … Love, Charlie.
