    New Years Day 2021

    January 1 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 22 °C

    Was a very windy night from the east, was a good idea for Jane to get her trusty kubota tractor out with the water tank before we went to bed and give the fire a good drenching and was rather funny with a few drinks under all our belts.
    Out of bed around 7:30 and still reasonably breezy, think we all feeling ok a few coffees and cuppa teas to get the day started, Pete and Kane got on the job with the breakfast, bacon and egg rolls, very nice 👍
    A little bit of chill out time before we packed up and said goodbye to the Redwood clan and 2020, not a great start to COVID 2021 as the borders are in lock down again and the drive home was busy on the road.
    Thanks again to our great friends and bring on a great 2021 👍👍

    New Years Eve Party Day

    December 31, 2020 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 23 °C

    The year is coming to a fast end after a tough year of bushfires and COVID, it was time to send it off Redwood style. Packed the van and headed out to Jane and Pete’s Redwood ASH Stud, Kane and Pete had the fire cranked up and a good supply of wood when we arrived, Mel had her self setup in the gooseneck and Kane and Jack had the tent up, parked the van and a quick 5 minute setup we good to go.
    Time to get the meat on the spit, lamb and chook, followed by a few afternoon bevies, the day was a bit windy but was warm in the sun but as the day went on the fire was the place to be.
    The girls finished preparing all the tucker and then got their drinking boots on, dinner was great and a big shout out for Jane’s scallop potato with sweet potato a great combo.
    Lots more drinking and yakking, and lots of laughter as we made our way to midnight, Jane made the party with her backwards redwood cap and a swag of midori’s on the go.
    No countdown just a cheer for the end of 2020 and a little burst of fireworks from far away, we made it till 1 o’clock in 2021 and hit the sack.
    What a crazy year, thanks to all our great friends for making the end of it good, with our few COVIDSafe get togethers.
