The Whipstick forest yesterday, was bliss.

A short walk from home.
This walk through the Whipstick forest yesterday was bliss.
I wish I could attach sound & smell. The sound: crickets, cicadas, wattle birds and the occasional Australian magpie. Smell: Eucalyptus and Acacia. The weather at the moment is a just right 25°C blue sky with a few clouds.

Road trip.

There's something to be said for taking the long way.
I'd forgotten what a big old country town was like. Big old dusty roads, with wide wrought iron verandahs.
The best chocolate molted milkshakes and hamburgers with a crust.
I've almost convinced myself to go on a long drive to find more of these wonderful old Victorian era buildings and parks.
