Apologies to all the winners at the Bondo Springy event, because I won. The organisers have confirmed that I went to all the controls. Admittedly some taping, some hanging and the rest on the day. I hope you all enjoyed the day.
I thought the best part was going with Ross and Leanne on the day of the event. They just didn’t stop and let me see the moon come up! (Not like taping and hanging – they faff around all the time.) I had to help Ross and Leanne hurry home though so they weren’t too late !
The snakes were a bit of a worry, me being so small I couldn’t wear gaiters. Most of the time they were too cold to move, but they still look scary. And the creeks ! Never seen so much water. Glad I was carried – some of the creeks were very muddy and a bit scratchy. The little caladenia orchids were just flowering too. Check out the photos.
Thanks to all the volunteers who helped run the event, and the control collectors who also had a beautiful sunny day on Sunday. Also thanks to Hartley crew who kept everyone all fed and even made a very yummy breakfast on Sunday morning.
My final word of advice: Never take the google’s advice when driving to an event. You could end up in a boggy creek. Read the final instructions “How to get there” and follow them!!!
