Our last post talked about the completion of our new dam. We were very excited!. Well, excitement turned to apprehension as the BIG RAIN came. Would our new dam wall hold? Well, we were blessed and it did. The dam filled to overflow and cascaded onwards with only a minimal amount of erosion.
The next big rain, we stayed at Bindarrabi and were cut off as the creeks at both the locked gate and the bridge went under. Unfortunately we lost our bridge over into the Harvest Field. The pipes were swept away with one being found about 400m downstream. Consequently Doone decided a ford was the answer. So we have cleared either side of a rocky ledge and will concrete that entry and exit once the rain has stopped, and yes, it is still raining as I am writing this. Fortunately, we have had a few sunny days in between and we had some lovely brazilian folks vist which was a lot of fun!
The rain stayed mostly away for our Easter camp which was very relaxed. We showed some new visitors around, had a lovely walk to the Hidden Waterfall and watched movies under the stars, well, one night under the stars and the next night in the camp kitchen out of the drizzle :)
Hopefully we will have some news in the next couple of months regarding our Development Application so stay tuned!!
Water water everywhere!!
Fun with our Brazilian friends!
