Meander Dam


Yesterday after church, we decided to take a drive to see the Meander Dam that has recently been built at Meander. I had never been before and I was surprised at how beautiful the area is.


I was expecting that because it is away from civilisation (not that Westbury is much of a metropolis) that it would be "a hole" but Simon pointed out things like Quamby Bluff and Jackie's Marsh along the way and the mist around the mountains in the rain was hauntingly serene.

I did not realise that you can have BBQs and swim and fish at the dam so it will be the place to go in summer when we hit 40 degrees again. :) The kids had a ball asking all kinds of questions about the dam and did not even seem to mind that it was teeming with rain.






This little munchkin loved the drive too........

but was tuckered out by the time we got home.
