Burke's Creek

Rain, rain, rain.  We finally got our little share.  In fact, the whole area received steady rain rather than the patchy "luck of the draw" rain that we've become accustomed to.  I never ever thought I'd see water in the creek at the bottom of our property ever again!  Burke's Creek has had water in it only twice before in the last 17 years, the time that we've lived at The Rock.  So, twice before we've witnessed a little water flowing past our place.  But this?   It's like a raging river.  Excuse the great excitement but the creek bed is very deep with steep sides, obviously from the stoneage period.  Look at it now..............

That's not just a few feet deep; some of those trees are extremely tall and you're only seeing the tops of them. The banks you see in the background in the photo to the left, are another 3 times that in depth and quite "cave-like".  I've always told the grandchildren when they were little that these caves could tell many an exciting story from past eras.  We loved our walks through the dry creek bed and recently it has been the path for many exciting expeditions on the quad bikes.  Shall take a long time to be dried out again.  I wonder?

This week?  Have finished setting up at the CraftExpo at Homebush, Sydney, ready to commence Thursday 11th March.  Sydney-siders - please visit us on Stand A01.
