north block picnic.

At last.

Something that I have wanted to do for a very long time. A picnic on top of North Block. Up by the tower. I only discovered recently that North and South Block are not actually Marble Range. MR is a set of hills next to them. The view from home shows them all pretty much all joined together. That is so not the case.

(Nth Block from home. We had our picnic at the very top )

So that really motivated me to go for a picnic and check out the views (and to see how wrong I was). With school holidays here, this was the perfect time. We waited for a good day weather wise. And waited. And waited. And finally today was it. The perfect day.

KM and her boys came along for the day too. We even had a spray plane spreading Urea below us. How weird to be above a plane instead of below it when its working.

Picnic with a view.

The towers. Discovered the large tower is for aircraft navigation. and those satillete dishes were humming. You could really hear them.

It was only a little bit hazy. It wasn't cold, it wasn't windy. We had a tiny light shower of rain that drizzled over. That just lent to the atmosphere.

Today was magnificent. Just how I hoped it would be.

Thanks K and the boys for the company. All the kids had a blast. Esp with the bubbles flying off up, up and away.
