WALK IN THE WOODS

Come with me on my morning walk. 
 I walk down our street and I meet Helen. We walk into the forest at the end of the street.

 After 15 mins we come to the picnic area where we meet some more ladies in one of the carparks.

 Then we all set off along one of the many trails in the forest.


 We often see wallabies along the way.

 Sometimes we walk through the swampy Tea Tree Forest on a boardwalk.

 We leave the forest for a short walk to Lake Dennis and then return to the forest.

 We climb lots of hills and do a lot of chatting. 

 Helen and I say goodbye to our pals as they go back to the carpark and we take the path to our village.

 We leave the forest and walk into........

 the gate of the village.

 Up the hill to the top

and turn into our street. It takes us an hour and we walk about 4k. Then it s time for breakfast and a cuppa. I love Daisy Hill Forest and I love my morning walks although cold, dark, winter mornings are a bit challenging.

  3. I am not sure that your cold and dark winter mornings are quite like those of Melbourne. Your exercise regime sounds terrific and social connections are there too.

  6. Diane, you certainly cover good ground in an hour and of course, you get a lot of talking done. I don't ever want to be without friends of my ilk and age. You surroundings are beautiful and look so peaceful. It's good to see you back on blogger. I have always enjoyed your posts. Have a great day. Jo

  10. It looks wonderful, what a beautiful forest and lake. I keep meaning to walk before breakfast but rarely do. Maybe it'd be easier with someone to walk with. Not too many wallabies around here... the baby in the pouch is cute.

  14. I know what you mean about 'cold, dark mornings'... I HATE to get out of my nice, warm bed --but once I'm up, I love walking early in the morning.... We've had a lot of rain recently which makes walking a challenge --but we NEED the rain after our big drought last year.

    Love love love your new home and area... Having such a great place to walk is so special... Bet you have already meat tons of new friends.

    Hugs,
    Betsy

  19. Proud of you for keeping up the walks even when the weather is a bit unfavorable. I was never good at that. Wonderful to have friends to share the morning walk .... you are a bunch of dedicated women! beautiful walk too. (I'll never get used to the casual 'sometimes we see a wallaby...' .. )
