Global Design Project #031 | Theme Challenge

This week the GDP Team have given us a Theme Challenge and it’s NATURE.


Wow…that’s giving us a broad scope….God’s Creation.

Many years ago…. before children even before my wonderful Husband.

I got the chance to travel to the Northern Territory with a group of friends (5 of us – five girls, one boy). It was great, my first real holiday.

We flew to Darwin, hired a car (thank goodness they up graded it for us, as 5 people in a small car plus luggage was going to be a bit squishy –

but that’s what you do when your young to keep costs down) and traveled down to Ayers Rock over a 2 week period.

So many stories I could tell…but today I only want to share one.

One of the places we stopped at was Katherine Gorge on Katherine River. A naturally beautiful place on the river.

Its made up of 13 gorges but my friends and I only saw the first three,well to be truthful they saw 3, I saw 2 and the beginning of the third.

We hired 2 x 2 man canoe’s and 1  x 1 man Canoe/ Kayak  ..which I used (I was much younger and fitter back them …much fitter)

In between each gorge was “Rock Bars/Banks”, which you had to get the canoe’s over and every time we had to get out of the canoe’s

I just fell out or rolled out. I ended up very wet…….but so much fun!

Anyway we got to the end of the second gorge and the rock bank had a lovely tree growing on it and a nice little spot to sit. So I let the others go

on as I didn’t want to go further to climb a cliff face and jump into the water…I’d fallen in enough..LOL!

But sitting there under the tree I relaxed and was fascinated by these beautiful “Dragonfly’s” all different colours….

 so beautiful and so much God’s Wonderful Creation.


So my card today reflects on this time…the friends I shared this time with and the beauty of NATURE.
