On the weekend Matt and I drove the long drive out to visit our friend Fiona, who moved to Forbes earlier this year. We had a pretty wonderful time.


One of the most amazing things about driving out was the landscape. It was not my first time in the country, but it was definitely my first time being there after the drought had broken. I have no memories of driving through the west except during the drought. The rain has made the landscape a rich green that I have never seen before, except in pictures of the English countryside.

      I know! It looks like another planet. It’s pretty exciting to see things actually growing. Apparently now everyone is worried about locusts.
