NEVER NEVER IN THE PROMISED LAND...a picnic in twerked harem pants...

 Never Never Creek, pristine and beautiful, begins its life 
at the foot of the Great Dividing Range in The Promised Land...
when the early European settlers arrived it flowed with milk and honey in the form of 'red gold' - cedar timber; verdant, lush pastures for dairying; rainfall and plentiful water; unsurpassed natural beauty...


The Promised Land is a ten minute drive from my house and I 
still fall under its magical spell...it's stunningly beautiful, peaceful, 
spiritual...the Gumbayngir people are the Aboriginal custodians
of the land.





Earthy leaves, 
 Moss, acid green...
Mirror pools...



Inhaling the forest
as I follow the winding track
towards the sound of 
rushing water... 
  






Picnicking beside the Never Never with a friend...
  






Red and white check table cloth, about my vintage, belonged to my Auntie Betty (even everyday table cloths were made of beautiful fabric back then); beach chairs are long lifers from the late 70's, re-covered in tough canvas; picnic baskets from another time...pre-loved scarves...
Delicious fresh food...  










 
Magical pools...



Spontaneous
dance...

Favourite Indian scarf discovered in a pre-loved sale at Bello Markets; my gorgeous hand crafted cotton shrug; Balinese lace top; Twerked (as in tweaked/reworked) harem pants...


I can't remember where I found the soft cotton harem pants, I've 
had them a while...but after many episodes of tripping over, getting 
hung up in the voluminous legs, I pulled out the cords, restitched a hem
and have very flowing culottes instead.

My scarves have many lives...    




Packing up the picnic...
And I leave, transformed...
