And the rain came tumbling down....

When we went to Piction it rained and rained and rained.
Our brand new awning leaked down every seam.
Luckily we had taken a real bed
because we paddled across the awning, shook the water off our feet
and climbed into bed. I'm not exaggerating. It's a true story.

Over night the wee quiet stream became a raging torrent.
I think it rose about a metre over the four days and nights it rained.

It was majestic and awesome.

It's not too bad when it rains, you get to stay in the caravan and play games.
The only downside is going to the toilet and collecting drinking water from the tap.

I'm not sure I could do it for six months like Kate and her amazing family.

Alexander Holiday park is pretty low budget
but it is real camping. I love it.

Especially these back sites set in the bush looking at the mountains. Amazing.


  1. I have come to love camping, though we were by the seashore. Funny thing about camping around RVers. They worry too much about us in our tents. Funny thing, they seem to spend all day working on fixing something with the RV, while we enjoy kicking back.

    Thanks for the lovely pics.

    blessings, jilly

  2. Lol, had to laugh at myself as I thought at first you meant Picton NSW Australia and I was wondering why you'd come over the ditch! The scenery looks similar to some from 30 years ago when I used to camp at Picton NSW sometimes on the way to somewhere else. I guess it has changed now. I love your gorgeous camping spot and I'm more of a rivers/stream person than a seaside camper....waves are too noisy at night :).

  3. I'm sure it was fun anyway! We've just come back from camping - but mostly very hot here in Western Australia. Happy New Year to you!

  4. We are off camping next week - I'm looking forward to it ::))

  5. What a beautiful place to camp, beautiful photos.

  6. It does look incredibly picturesque but I have to say I am no good at camping in the rain. That part really did my head in. But I'm missing it now. The simplicity and ease.


Thanks so much for dropping by. I love to hear from you and I want you to know that I really appreciate each comment!!
