Sunday was glorious. Blue skies and birds singing, and I managed to persuade PH come for a walk with me. We decided to take a walk along the creek, where there is a trail that runs right through the city to the Lake.
Children fishing in the creek. It's not very deep here, but we were concerned as there were no parents to supervise them.
It has eroded the banks and left lots of damage in paved areas.
I held my breath when I saw the patch of blue. They are blue bells, and when I looked up the hill behind us there was a garden filled with them. They have found their way down to the creek bank. I'm so excited, as anyone who knows me knows how I feel about these flowers..!
There are lots of felled trees here. They have been left as nurse logs, and are home to many birds, animals and insects.
The ledges of rock make gently flowing rapids. The road above this part of the walk is called Mill St. perhaps many years ago there was a mill here? This area looks entirely different as the weather improves. These pictures are from just a 3km stretch. We hope to walk the entire 22 km, over the course of the summer.
HAPPY EARTH DAY to everyone..!
