Beyond...



I love Sundays, when the house smells like freshly baked scones with a touch of fresh blueberries. What a perfect way to start the day. With the picnic basket packed my husband & I set off to do some exploring....



Beyond the beautiful beaches & ancient rainforest lies a 
forgotten paradise that we can only reach during the dry season.
The one & only road that leads us out to civilization has finally dried up enough for us to cross the rivers and head out for some fresh water creek delight!




After passing through the rainforest that boarders the community we are on top of the Iron Range National Park where mighty Mt Tozer stands tall & proud... this is a very sacred place for the local people and it's not hard to see why.
 

Cooling down in some beautiful fresh water is the best way to spend a Sunday... followed by taking the time to sit back and relax while indulging in our blueberry scones!
Up here in the high country the hidden aesthetics are much different to the coast where we normally go exploring so I thought it appropriate to capture a few of treasures I found...




The endemic Pitcher Plants that are scattered throughout 
the Iron Range heathlands.



It was so lovely to have a change of scenery & cleanse the soul in some fresh water. While I love a Cape York summer, the colours of a Cape York autumn are still very much inspiring. It is also comforting to know we have access to the outside world again...

I hope everyone's weekend was filled 
with sunshine, fresh water & blueberry scones! 
Love & light xox

This place looks amazing... just stunning. And you two sound like you are treasuring every moment of your time there.

Happy dry autumn to you both! We are meanwhile living with rain, rain and more rain :)
(except today!)
One day I would love to visit this country - never have been to the Cape - but have neen to the territory... miss that wildness.
Loving this blog of yours.
