Wednesday 5th July 2017


Two days in a row with good weather...I'm off out again. Though this time it was a solo drive. I had a small list of places to go to, starting with Dalrymple Gap Track. My hopes were high to find more orchids, though I had no luck (it must be due to the lack of the expert tracker!).

I had morning tea at 5 Mile Swimming Hole, though I didn't venture in; it was almost warm enough for me!

My final stop was back at the Edmund Kennedy National Park. Geoff I & had done some of the track in April. Today I completed it, & returned along the beach. I found a huge epiphyte orchid growing out of a fallen log on the ground, about to burst into flower (so yes I will have to return in a week or 2).

I was house hubby today. Washing, house stuff, van stuff. It was fine for me.
