Words fail me.
"Oh, the shame of it all. Please, please Cushion, can we go home now please?"
[If you have no idea why I had to wear socks, you haven't been following my holiday adventure and you'll just have to go back and read about it.]
Before the humiliating experience of having to wear size 0-3 blue and white striped baby socks on a public sidewalk [purchased from the emporium following advice from our lunch companions], I found Nimbin to be a colourful and interesting town.
My humans brought Mr Piglet and Mr Thumper here a long time ago. They say it was a lot busier this time because it was the holidays, but much the same otherwise.
Nimbin is a special place. It used to be a quiet dairy town. Then in 1973, some humans came here for the Aquarius festival and never went home! Can you believe that? Imagine how worried their parents must be.
The Typist saw many things she wanted to buy in Nimbin. Incense! Beads! Tie-dye everything! Cakes! Crystals! Indian skirts! But she's no longer allowed to give in to crass consumerism.
It took about 1 hour to get to Nimbin from our little timber cabin, not because it was far away but because the road went round and round and up and down the hills. We took some pictures to show you how pretty it was.
If you like, you can play this before you look at the pictures. It's what we were listening to almost the entire time because Someone forgot to organise music for the trip.
Or you can play this, if you prefer.
Here we go!
We passed many macadamia orchards.
Stryliah is the world's biggest producer of macadamias. They're a native nut. I wish I could tell you what they taste like but I'm not allowed any because they make dogs sick.
The Typist forced Cushion to stop so she could take a picture of this beautiful Cassia fistula!
There were cute little villages all along the way, like this one.And signs that gave you an idea of what sort of humans lived in the area.
They even had fun with the awful potholes in the road!Look! This is a monumental moment! The first time ever I've sat nicely in a car to watch the world go by.
"Chill Cushion. What's the hurry? We're on holiday."
I think my humans are very proud of how far I've come in the car. And despite the socks, we all had a great day.
* Is it true that macadamia nuts make dogs sick? Would I lie to you?
"Ingestion of macadamia nuts by dogs has been associated with a nonfatal syndrome characterized by vomiting, ataxia, weakness, hyperthermia, and depression. Dogs are the only species in which signs have been reported."
