WALT, A Zebra Cake and 2000 Acres of Sky



As I mentioned in my last post, Walt arrived at my house to much excitement and fanfare. He had come all the way from sunny Queensland for an outback adventure...and adventure he got!



While WALT was here we took him to sit on the Big Chair...

Broken Hill


we shared some of our mining history...

 
Broken Hill



and we certainly didn't forget a visit to Bells Milk Bar for a taste of the 1950's with a raspberry spider!

Broken Hill


During WALT'S visit we also got the chance to go out to visit my family on their property. This meant WALT slipped over the border into South Australia for a day!


WALT got the chance to appreciate the wide open spaces...



meet some of the family

 

and join in a birthday celebration.

turning 5!


We have absolutely loved having WALT to stay and while we have enjoyed showing him around our home, Master 9 and Miss 7 have been inspired to find out a little about his home town and think about the differences and similarities.

WALT has had lots of laughs and many little arms around him thanks to the Little B's and their cousins (he may also have had some rather sticky, cakey fingers on him and a little red dirt on his fur but all with love!). We are sending him on with lots of happy thoughts

Bon Voyage WALT....we wonder what you will get up to next?!

I am linking up with Jacana from WALT'S home town and her Totally Thursday

STOP THE PRESS...WALT's bags are packed and he is ready to go but he decided to stop at the Little B's school on the way. It was so exciting HE LOST HIS HEAD!!!!!
 

 
He is going to need a couple of days to "pull himself together" before he is ready to travel again. Sorry...he is coming!

    1. I wasn't so excited when I got a call from the teacher about poor Walt but it's all good now :)
      It's never a proper holiday if some first aid isn't required!

  5. Nothing like parting so hard you loose your head, hehe. Looks like he has had a brilliant time and loads of love. So much better than being in a bin in an Op Shop. Thanks for having him Kate.

  7. He sure is Alicia! He is now on his way to another NSW location although I nearly had to smuggle him out as no-one wanted to say goodbye :)

  8. Losing his head probably isn't the smartest thing a bear can do but I sure hope he remembers all the great stuff he did with your family!

    1. You can't say he has not been well loved so far! I do hope he can hold it together from here on in...it is not a good feeling to have a visiting friend fall apart so dramatically, especially when you have to own up to so many avid WALT watchers!
