As these were taken with our phones I'm posting in The Lounge.
Tina and I took advantage of the perfect autumn weather to picnic in the nearby Warby Ranges.

A thermos of coffee, a few gourmet bangers, a slice of tomato wrapped in fresh white bread and there it was *yes

It's supposed to be autumn but more like an Indian summer, the wildflowers are gone except for the Paper Daisies.

Tina takes photography seriously, has more cameras than I, yet our best were the ones we had with us!

We saw not a soul all day. So while Tina was having fun shooting daisies dad of course was left to pack up! *shrug

Hi there Mark!

Looks like you had a nice day out! We're hoping to take the kids onsome picnics over the next week, but I don't think we will have quite as nice weather as you have. I can't believe that you left home without the XZ-1 though!

Looks like a good bonding day, like the shot of the tree. Did you use your new transport?

John, Ralph, Ed - The phones are fine for happy snaps and since I started painting again I have to admit that as an octogenerian the passion for photography is somewhat burnt out.

I did use the new wheels, Ed but clearly it's not made for bush tracks. The kids kept reminding me that the Nissan wasn't a 4WD yet it was never afraid of a little off roading. Son Ben warned me that one day the Pulsar would wind up coming down a steep forest fire trail on its roof.

Nevertheless, the Mazda driven carefully was fine on the unsealed tracks, not a squeak or rattle to be heard.
