Fun in Esk

Skye says hi againI haven't had much say on this blog for some time now.  This wonderful movie production is my little mate Max (a moodle — not a noodle that you can eat!) and myself having a great tugging game — for a little fella he's quite feisty.

That's enough from Skye!

What a wonderful little town Esk is, I just loved it there.  For the past 2 weeks I've been camped beside a friend, Colleen and of course little Max her puppy.  We've had a lovely relaxing time - lots of walking (but unfortunately there's always a cafe at the end of the walk), and driving to local sights.

If you're ever in Toowoomba a visit to the Japanese Gardens is a must - the gardens were designed in 1989 by Professor Kinsaku Nakane - renowned as the modern day master of Japanese garden design. There are around 2,500 Azaleas planted on the hill behind the lake - they are pruned to eventually provide a wave-like massed green mat which will burst into vivid colour in Spring.
