Lake Macquarie
My family just got back from a camp at  Lake Macquarie. I took a lot of photos, It took an hour to load them on to the computer.... But because nearly all of them were of people (and I may need permission to post so many) this is a sunset post! With words as well as photos. We had a lot of fun at the camp, tubing (or taking photos of it), eating, talking and playing card games... like Scum and Mafia and a lot more talking, sitting or standing around, playing with babies, riding on boats and having fun, with not much sleeping involved..... especially with daylight saving happening that weekend!

On the second evening I looked down the slope toward the lake and saw golden light falling between the trees. I could also see the water and a trail of gold leading across the water to the sun, but a fence surrounded the campsite.

It also happened that barbed wire encircled the top of the fence so climbing over would be doable but potentially hazardous, and climbing in looked even harder than out. Then I noticed the gap between the locked gate and the ground.... I managed to squeeze under, just. I also got rather dirty in the process.  Not something I like doing but for photo opportunities....

I had though about the difficulty of getting back in if I climbed over but not getting under again. I also realized that the tea time siren would probably not be loud enough for me to hear from all the way down at the lake and no one actually knew where I was....

Getting back through up hill proved awkward and I had trouble getting me and my camera through but I did..... and then I ran up the hill and found the siren had gone ages ago and people had already started eating.... So the next night I got a key for the gate first... and because of daylight saving we went straight after tea and I also acquired a few more people with cameras, who had seen my photos from the evening before. And I had my lovely sister a a model too.

There were also some random people fishing from the jetty too, which added a nice human element to the photos.

Isn't our Gods creation so wonderful! And here is the link to the [sermon] Pastor Dave preached on Sunday at the camp. God is Good! His word is Good!

Psalm 19:7-11 

7 The law of the Lord is perfect,
reviving the soul;
the testimony of the Lord is sure,
making wise the simple;
8 the precepts of the Lord are right,
rejoicing the heart;
the commandment of the Lord is pure,
enlightening the eyes;
9 the fear of the Lord is clean,
enduring forever;
the rules of the Lord are true,
and righteous altogether.
10 More to be desired are they than gold,
even much fine gold;
sweeter also than honey
and drippings of the honeycomb.
11 Moreover, by them is your servant warned;
in keeping them there is great reward.
