Another early morning walk..



Whenever Aimee and I call in to visit my mum and dad at Pinnaroo Valley Memorial Park we take the opportunity for a walk through Pinnaroo Bushland Reserve.. roughly seven km from when we walk out of my front door and return a few hours later. A really pretty bush reserve that was thankfully saved from housing development many years back through protest from the locals.. 


Can you see the colourful galah sitting all alone towards the bottom of the tree below?  No.. ok I'll zoom in a bit :)


Just about every female kangaroo had a baby joey popping out of her pouch.. so sweet. Sadly we were a bit late for the masses of wild freesias, only a few here and there. The very next day Aimee walked from Hillarys Boat Harbour to the city.. 27km, that's 15km to many for me :) Happy Friday, take care and stay safe..

  2. It seems so amazing to see a Kangaroo just hanging about!
    I thought of you today - it was only 9˚C this morning so I took off the sandals and put my Blundstones on so it is now officially fall for me. ;-)

  6. What wonderful photos! That must have been a perfect walk in the bush. Since we don't see galahs and kangaroos around these parts, it's a treat to see them in your photos.

  11. Bush...galah...kangaroo...amazing, different, and wonderful to see. Your hemisphere is full of fascinating differences. I've never seen wild freesia. Are they fragrant?

  12. Thanks again, Grace, that the two of you (well, P in that case) took us there at the right time to see the roos. Another bitter-sweet place, is it.
    To our parents/loved ones, the ones that are gone here, but still in our hearts.

  13. What a quiet place. I wonder what the smells can be and I imagine the softness of the light at this time of day. Your pictures are very beautiful

  14. Take it easy with walking, it must be a pretty walk no exhausting exercise. Love that sweet kangaroo proudly showing her child. What were you talking about on my blog yesterday? I didn't understand a bit of it, did you have a drink to much? :)
