Forgive me, friends, for I have slacked off. It's been seven months since I last wrote a post.
But I haven't been entirely idle. First I bought a new car and went to Kingfisher Park at Julatten. While there, I popped out to Abattoir Swamp, as one does. I hadn't been there for seven years.

Then I wandered up to Lakeland, west of Cooktown, via Maryfarms. I hadn't been to Lakeland since the road was sealed.

After which, I drove to Chillagoe.

And then I was about to head south on a big road trip — a road trip I had been looking forward to for a freakin' year — the windscreen on my 12 day old car was badly damaged by a loose stone and I had to go to Cairns to get it replaced.
I stayed overnight.
And then — finally — I got on the highway and headed south on my road trip. More of that tomoz.
