We don’t worry too much about the freshies (they keep to themselves, except when they occasionally bite people). There’s a perfect swimming hole about 9 kilometers from Mornington Station, called Blue Bush (no idea why), which makes a nice afternoon getaway. A few of us went down there this weekend to float around in inflated truck tires and stare cautiously at some tourists. Rainbow Bee-Eaters and Agile Wallabies flitted and hopped, respectively, until the sun set around 5pm. Solstice has hit – the days are getting longer now!
