Busy Day!

What a busy day yesterday.. Visited my oldest son then went on to the middle sons for the grandsons birthday. My youngest granson is now a teenager god bless him, with all that entails too I should imagine, puberty etc etc.. What sort of a gran am I ?? I had my camera but it didn't come out of the case because I was busy checking out the new, one day old silky chicks... Just gorgeous.... I think I may take up chicken farming... Just joking of course, John would have a pink fit if I said I was going to keep some.  After that we went to look at the floodwater coming down the gorge.. Can you imagine?? We have a beautiful area around the gorge, which is 5-6 minutes walk from the center of the city, where you can walk and picnic or stop at the restaurant or the small cafe. Or in summer, swim in the basin pool.How lucky are we?? I didn't manage any photos of the basin itself because there were so many visitors there wasn't any parking available. After that we went to Maccas for dinner and then home to make tomato relish.
