We had an invitation to visit a sheep station and thought this was a good occasion to do it so off we went. I was a little worried that Crock 2 might find it difficult travelling about 400 kms in the back seat of a car with a Westie sitting beside her. I needn’t have been concerned.

No question about how the plane got up there!
