A Drive in the Country

We headed out of town today to enjoy some fresh air and sunshine.  We visited New Norcia which is about 2hours drive away. New Norcia is the only monastic town in Australia.  You can read more about it here

Everything was lovely and green and the sky was so blue!
The red dirt made an awesome contrast
We saw lots of trucks on the road
First we visited the museum and art gallery (no photos were allowed to be taken inside)
I love all the old buildings
A large tour group was going on a 2hr walk of the town
The girls check out an old washing machine in an outside shed
Kate checked out the brick maker
The clock across the road chimed when it was 2pm
Pretty purple Iris's
I love this photo
30 deg means little legs need a little rest
The old flour mill
Open space for miles
We headed to the local hotel for food and drinks after that walk!
Despite the heat, there was a nice breeze blowing through
We passed lots of fields of canola
and not many cars going home
