Once the lovely shingleback was safely relocated, we set about preparing a late lunch. I was quite hungry and very keen to get our BBQ underway.
Nick and Erin set up the tables, chairs and dual-fuel stove while I retrieved various ingredients from the fridge.
It was quite a flash lunch of chicken and crunchy salad on wrap bread, served with icy cold juice.
After lunch Nick and I walked down to the lake. When we first drove up, I thought there was water far off in the distance.
On closer inspection there wasn't water - only heat haze.
It seems the lake did have a lot of water at the end of 2010, for the first time in over a decade. It was big news and the ABC ran a story about it in December 2010 and another one in February 2011.
