PICNIC AT HANGING ROCK
Firstly,there really is a place called Hanging Rock that is about an hour north
west of Melbourne.Some years back a movie was made about a group of
young girls who disappeared while climbing the Rock.Although,the rock
structures are huge and menacing,there are so many people swarming
around,taking photos,chasing kids,that no-one could go missing now.
We had our picnic over looking a sports field where a very serious bunch of
blokes were playing cricket.On the edges,kids were kicking footies and running
races and hootin' and hollerin'.All good outdoorsy fun.
Of course we had to climb the Rock.Once past a gently rising path,a series of
steep steps took us to the top amongst wierd rock formations similar to those
found on Easter Island,but worn and weathered into crags and crevasses.
We certainly burnt off the calories from the chocolate eggs and buns.
