That is what you expect in winter if you live in the mountains.
That said we do benefit from our move north (which Downunder means closer to the Equator).
Yesterday we nipped (only two hours drive) down to visit our eldest E at Yamba where she has recently moved.
We sat here over looking the Clarence River to have lunch.
Not bad for a winter day?
Interestingly some of the water that flows past here originates in the very spring we get our domestic water at the cottage. Our little stream is almost as small as it gets, conversely the Clarence gives the local area the title "Big River Country".
