30/12/2017   Photo a Day  Best Photo of 2017

This may not be the best photo of the year but it is my favourite because these three cousins have not seen each other for over 40 years. Jayne had not seen Tony since 1970 and I last saw him in 1972.
He and his family spent many years on Cattle Stations in  NT, The Kimberley and Western Queensland but now he lives in the Darling Downs area.
