Default Junior's photos

Well we did have "high hopes" of bringing some really great photos to "show and tell" to you all, except that for some reason a glitch in the memory card of our camera deleted some 800+ photos on us so as a result, our little thematic displays went all astray on us. Anyone know how to fix that problem? And NO it wasn't either of us who deleted them on purpose because as I said in another thread, we were rather snap happy until darling hubby went to download it all and there was diddly-squat that came out. So really the only photos we have are what Junior had taken and here's the best of the bunch...

At the Gold Musuem, Ballarat:




Sovereign Hill, Ballarat:


Yes he's holding a gold ingot worth $135,000 and felt very rich for a whole minute


Shall we send him to school here?


Via horse and cart perhaps?


The cat presiding over watching everyone get dressed up in 1850's garb:


We do appologise but this is all we've got of our holiday and we do feel disappointed that we couldn't bring more but them's the breaks...

For the following places, I've had to "borrow" some photos to give you an idea of what we've lost...

At Mt Gambier, we visited the following:
*Volcano,
*Blue Lake,

*Waterfall Gardens (Hans, you would have loved to have seen these gardens, simply magical and very serene), www.waterfallgardens.com.au

For those who like spelunking:
*Naracoorte Caves,

*Margaret Rose Caves,

*Engelbrecht Caves (which is diver accessible but one has to have level 4 qualifications to go "in"),


Ballarat:
*Wildlife Park,
*Sovereign Hill,
*Gold Museum,
*Kryal Castle,
*Mini Golf.

Looks like a great visit Jube, and how frustrating to lose your pics.

It was a pity to have lost so much but as hubby said, we can always go back again. It was just one of those sickening jolts in life that you think "why me?" Frustrating as it is, I kind of look forward to it because, as you'll see in the following 2 photographs, how much one darling child has grown in a baby moment to a current one:




Not sure how Junior will respond if we ask him for a family holiday in 10 years time so we can get the next one done *chuckles*
