A Country Adventure

Hello,

We spent some lovely, relaxing days in January  in the country around Wide Bay. We are lucky to have friends with a house surrounded by cane fields.

swing under the mango tree-Lilibet Stanley My Little Lady loves nothing more than to be pushed on the swing under a mango tree and what a nice way to spend a late afternoon, once the sun has done down a little!
