The Kimberley's Part 3

So I think I covered water in Parts 1 and 2 and I thought today I would show you some of the aboriginal rock art.

The Wandjina's are the creator spirits. These paintings are refreshed periodically.

Gwion Gwion figures are the oldest rock art thought to date back at least 17000 years. Aboriginal people say they are the lost stories, painted by a different people.

 Some of them have later painting layered on top.

We're enjoying a four-day weekend down at the beach thanks to the horsies (Melbourne Cup Day is Tuesday). The weather was lovely today but a change is coming tonight. We played some tennis, took a little excursion to the beach and BBQ dinner outside. The Little Girl got her plaster off last Monday and made it through her first 2hr swimming session on Thursday night on a very modified program. Her knee and ankle are stiff and thigh muscle is wasted after 10 weeks in plaster but she's diligently doing her physio exercises. Hubby took her to the pool this afternoon and she spent 1.5hr swimming. It's the only thing she can do at the moment to give some relief from the fluid buildup in her foot but we're seeing good progress each day. Hopefully in a few weeks she'll be able to ditch the crutches.
