Yesterday this amazing rainbow stretched right over our property. One end at the yards,
the other disappearing into the hills behind the house.
If you look closely you may spy the second rainbow, somewhat overshadowed by the brilliance of the star act.
I took it as a fortuitous sign as we move into a new chapter in our lives, which involves the purchase of a property by the name of "Bottletree Creek", and the subsequent sale of Rock Wallaby to come.
Having driven through this neighbouring property to Chabo for many years, we have long admired the beautiful Buffel Grass country, ever fat cows and recently new fencing and water improvements. And after to-ing and fro-ing between solicitors, accountants and bankers for several weeks, last Friday we signed a contract on the property.
|This is Bottle Tree Creek, from where we rode when it was too wet to truck horses into Chabo earlier this year|
The three older children will then be in boarding school, with Sally to be home-schooled her last two years of primary school due to the absence of a school close to the new property.
So, as the rest of the world celebrates the Royal Wedding on April 29, we will celebrate settlement on our new home.
