JUstDreamInparadise.......JUDI living in Paradise

I am fifty something and I love my family and the life I live. I'm an optimistic person by nature and I try to find a positive for every negative. I'm not a vegetarian, but the animal I eat is. I enjoy cooking, photography and scrapbooking. Since living here I have become a gardener and take immense joy in the beauty of my garden. My husband and I feel that we are the caretakers of the land rather than land owners. We run a grass fed Droughtmaster Stud on our little piece of Paradise and the cattle are a never ending supply of photo opportunities.

Innot Hot Springs

Innot Hot Springs is a little place about 120 km south west of us.  We have driven through Innot hundreds of times on our way to Julia Creek and every single time we say "oh, we must stay there some time".  Well, the time finally came about two weeks ago.  For some reason I had it in my head that the hot springs would be in a stream and was very surprised to find that instead of using the stream (which is very shallow) they pump the water into six beautiful pools - three under cover and childfree and the other three outside.  The temperatures range from 25 to 45 degrees.  The 45 degree pool is very hot and I couldn't sit in it but Philip managed it.  He had a nagging back ache and he swears that within a half hour of soaking in the spring water his back was healed!
The caravan park was very quiet and we had a large choice of campsites to choose from.  We found a perfect spot that backed onto the creek.  We chatted to some fellow campers, many of whom were repeat visitors to the hot springs and I can tell you we will also be visiting again. We loved sitting outside the camper for sundowners, listening and watching the rosellas getting ready for nightfall and then waking to the same sounds.
