Picnic.......


After the beautiful rain that we have had in the past weeks the dams that hold the water supply for Brisbane and districts are almost full to capacity, something that hasn't happened since 1991. 

A new pipeline has been built to pump water from Wivenhoe Dam to our dam here near Toowoomba.  Hopefully this will bring much needed water to our dam which is only at 16% at the moment.



Yesterday, we decided to pack a picnic and go for a lovely drive to Somerset Dam and then into the Brisbane Valley to see the Wivenhoe Dam.  We had a lovely day out and enjoyed a picnic lunch in the town of Fernvale.



Water as far as you could see.  Definately a blessing from above.

Fernvale is a lovely spot. Did you check out the pies? They are great but couldn't be a great as Brendons!
