DH and I were in the group who went with Dan...
There are lots of gates to open and close of this kind of property; mostly DH jumped out of the vehicle and opened them...but some were a bit tricky so Dan opened them.
Kilto is a property which raises cattle to be sold on to graziers who fatten cattle for market...so at times there are lots of calves on the property and we saw quite a few. Some of the calves were only a few days old.
Out here the term 'turkey nest' refers to the earth dams used for storing water. The water is then gravity fed to open concrete tanks from which the stock drink.
So first there was a climb up the mounded earth, and then we could see the water.
Then it was back to the house to get ready for the party as guests would be arriving at 6pm.
Here are some photos of the food being enjoyed.
DsD1 was positively glowing in her lovely frock...the lady beside her in the top photo is her mum, who had worked hard to make the party a success. The middle photo is with her sisters and niece.
Later in the evening the couple cut the cake which was made by DsD2.
