Peter, and Olive,
I hope you are well in your wild country.
I saw that you have improved your web site by pictures.
I attach in this e-mail pictures of our stay (April 2004).

Sorry I took so long in
sending these. had some problems. Hope you get them.
Thank you for a wonderful
stay at your home. I will be going to meet my cousin in Sydney (not
Melbourne) for Christmas. Otherwise I would have called to beg floor
space for Christmas. One should always be near family at Christmas!.
I hope you and yours have
a wonderful holiday season and the the new year is happy and prosperous.
Please keep in touch.
Remember me It's Billy the Kid here from Bonnie
Scotland,here are some photos i promised you of the good times I had in
Myella especially the one with you cracking the whip above your head so
take care and hope to catch up with you all in 2006 .
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

just come from Cape Hillsborough Qld (absolutely gorgeous place to
either visit or stay - the people are awesome) for a fantastic lunch.
We decided to go into the shop to look at some of the local
"get-a-ways" (although we only live 45 mins away) and picked
up your brochure. Instead of going to Hamilton Island for a few
days (yet again) we have decided to experience something completely new
and exciting to us. We hope to see you sometime in January 2005.
Dear Peter, Olive, Ken
and Lyn, and shane and the gang.
I do hope you're all
well and enjoying your summer! how's little Tina doing, all my friends
back here in London have seen all of the pictures and I've recommended
you to lots of people. I was hard coming back, and I cant wait to do
the trip again, and I'm sorry I haven't written until now. University
has been a bit hectic and my workload has been mad especially at
school, the kids do know how to keep my busy, but I am enjoying it.
Gill and Baz are well,
Gill's living in Melbourne until the 20th and then she's coming back
to London for Christmas and then I think she starts her law degree in
Melbourne Uni, which is great. Baz is still studying in London, hates
it but is sticking it out for a chance in the big bad world!.
well, it was just a
quick note to say merry Christmas and happy new year, you've got
sunshine and I've got 5degrees!
take care, love to
Charmaine Kemp xxxx

We forget to write in your guestbook so we send you this mail instead.
Our time at myella have been the best time on our 2 month of travelling
it was so much of fun things to do like building new gate, horse riding,
riding the motorbikes and playing with the kids. but the best thing was
that you made us feel so welcome.
Thanks to all of you and I hope I see you again

|Paul and Kate
Olive, Peter, Barbara and all the others,
We only came for a day
trip to Myella originally but had such a great time we were back for 3
days only 2 days later. We've never been so relaxed and yet done so much
and had so much fun.
The horse riding and
motor biking through the beautiful red earth of Myella were amazing.
Thanks for teaching us to ride both and trying to teach me how to ride
Norman the bullock!
Added to all that the
hospitality, delicious cooking and excellent accommodation made Myella
Farmstay one of the best things we have done in a year of travelling.
Thanks once again and
we'll be back to see you all as soon as we can!
Paul and Kate
It has been almost two years since i have been to your beautifull farm.
I really loved it there. It was in my experience the most wonderfull
trip in Australia. The horse riding, and learning how to drive a motor,
feeding a young kankaroo and maning cheese souflets with you. Now my
girlfriend (Kim) is in Australie together with Marlinde. My question:
What is the most easy way for them to book a trip to your farm.
Peter and Olive,
Thank you very much for the lovely weekend I just had. I returned to
Sydney very relaxed (a little too relaxed for a day in the office!).
I've got a couple of friends who have been very interested in the
weekend I just had so I've passed on your details to them and hopefully
I will be back with you early April with my parents in tow!!!
Anyway thank you again, I hope the trip up north Lyn was good and
everything goes well for you all and the rain finally does come!!!
See you soon.
|Hi Lynn, Olive
I loved staying at your farm and I loved the food Olive cooked!
It was nice to learn to ride a horse and a bike, but... Tina, the little
kangaroo really stole my heart!!
I'll send you the picture I took of you as soon as I can (it can take a
How are you and the rest of you doing? Thank you for a great experience
at the farm. How are my horse doing, is he getting better to ride? As
you know I went to Fraser Island after being at your place and I had a
fantastik time there, with a great group of people, we saw so many
different animals, we did see the humpbacks and dingos. The rest of the
time in Aus was fast and then of to NZ, I was going to be there for 2
and 1/2 month, but I stayed there only for 5 weeks, I'm more to Aus,
even though I took lots of pictures in NZ. I went skydiving, that was a
little scary the first 5 sec of the freefall, but after that I enjoyed
the view. I have also been swimming
with the dolphins up on the North Island, great. After NZ I went to
Tonga for 5 days, but didn't like it. Now I'm in Samoa and it is great,
the weather is perfect and the view, wow. In a week I'm going to the
stats for 3 months, before going home for christmas instead of jan. as I
was do for and my parents don't know the date and it bothers them. I
hope that everything is going as it should, I really miss being out
there on horseback and our nice talks. Thanks for the note you wrote to
me, I learn some things too. Say hey to the others from me. Hope to hear
from you again.
|Kellee & Duncan
Thanks to everyone at the farm for a great weekend - the four of us
it and can't wait to come back again. The boys we're suprised how much
they loved the horse riding - duncan even wants us to get our own horse
when we move out of the city.

|Hi you all!!
At last have got round to downloading my photos to
disc and as promised allbeit a tad late I have emailed
you the photo taken of 'Marlborough Man' himself, Ray.
I hope you are all well - it really was one of my
best times ever in Australia and am planning to buy a
horse when I get back to my dad's farm in Scotland.
Please say hi to Ray and Renee. Have attached a good
photo of them taken after out lesson.
Let me know you get these ok....
Best wishes to you all. Btw, Olive, made some of your
cakes you gave me the recipe for and, as good as they
were, they just weren't as good as yours! Always the
Best wishes to you all

there with Sarah and Gemma)
It was over a year ago now
that I came and spent a fabulous week with you and your family at Myella. It's
Gloria, I came with a mad girl called Emma and we did Olympic formation
riding, and performed it to the others with the final motto " Peace,
Love and Tranquility "!! What were we thinking?!
I also managed to 'wake up'
McCafferty and wanted to take him gome with me (how's he doing?). We
fed Benji and Wilma.
Anyway I just wanted to say
thanks for showing me more about animals.
Olive, Peter and Ray
On behalf of "The Waites", I'd just like to say thanks very
much for the
wonderful stay that we had with you just over a week ago.
The kids loved the riding, milking the cows and searching hard for the
eggs (!), and I enjoyed my first riding lesson galloping across the yard
hanging onto the back of Smoking Joe. Anja loved it it too, being back
on a horse again, galloping across the farmland. Attached is a photo of
us with Lyn just before we left. Best wishes from Germany from
Mark, Anja, Daniel, Lisa, Millie and Lillian Waite
|I've recently discovered
that I am a descendant of Thomas Eather/Elizabeth Lee's daughter Rachel
Eather who married John Norris, I did a google search and found your web
page. Must come down one day for a visit. Great page and very
informative in regards to history.
|I HAVE FOUND YOUR WEB PAGE TO BE VERY INTERESTING. I AM
VERY INTERESTED IN THE TOURISM IN THE OUTBACK. THIS IS WHAT I'M STUDYING AT UNIVERSITY AND HOPEFULLY ONE DAY HAVE MY OWN FARM STAY. YOUR WEB PAGE IS VERY ENCOURAGING FOR PEOPLE LIKE MYSELF.
Just wanted to drop you a
quick line to say thank you so much, I had a wonderful time and will
definately be back when I am back in Australia next year. Don't know why
I had such a soft spot for that bloody pony, Smokin' Joe, but I hope he
will still be with you when I return.
Thank you to all your
family, I was made to feel so welcome and Olives cooking has to be the
best. I feel revitalised and ready to get back to the rat race.
Good luck with everything
and hopefully see you same time next year.
Love Niki x
|Got a link today by email
and landed on your homepage. I couldnít believe when I saw our
"Country girls" picture (you called it: "Girls in Myella
Fancy Dress") in the photo gallery. Itís almost three
years ago that I spent a few days with you on your beautiful farm.
All those memories.... like feeding Norman and the other calves, feeding
Midget, riding Candy every day (how is she??), sunset on Myella,
biking... etc. I loved it. I love it to look at the pictures I took and
I really told everybody more than once that it I had an absolutely great
time. I hope one day I will have the chance to come back again.
Hope you are all ok. With all the best wishes from Switzerland.
