This is what we came to see.. the Murray River. 'The longest permanent river in the jarrah forest and one of the few major rivers remaining undammed flows through Lane Poole Reserve . Slow and meandering in spring and summer people flock here to canoe its tranquil waters. In winter the river rises, with white water and fast currents creating a challenge for more experienced canoeists and kayakers'. Aimee and P tell me that Bobs Crossing below is where they would normally cross to the other side when hiking, not happening at the moment.. we have had so much rain in the last month that it's completely underwater..
Looks deep and tranquil when past the rapids but don't go jumping in willy-nilly there could be hidden 'stuff' under those beckoning waters :)
'If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?'
When we were in Europe there were many a desperate moment when there wasn't a loo to be found.. not so in Australia, even here in the middle of the forest 'accomodations' are met :) I'm sure there are many of you who have already seen or heard about Red Nomad Oz aka Marion Halliday's Aussie Loos with Views. Incroyable images..
So just as we were getting ready to head off a bus full of super excited and eager 'rapid rafters' arrived.. well I couldn't possible leave then could I :) To be continued.. Have a good Wednesday, take care and stay safe...
