Chinamans Island

It was such a lovely spring day blue sky's too nice to stay indoors.
My two Grandaughters "Rylie and Maddison" had come to visit me on returning home from a holiday in Fiji.And ask can we go for a walk,
My mate Gwen had come around for our daily cuppa .that was put on hold till we got back.
So all into the car drove to Yacht club parked the car there. Then off we went for our walk along a nice smooth bush track .meandering through the light bush near the waters edge,passing many people on the way.
After about 2hrs back home for our much needed cuppa. Gwen coffee myself Tea and the girls a soft drink. And the Girls had a very early night.If you would like to read more about the Girls trip to Fiji..
One of the Majestic gum trees at the start of our walk

My mate Gwen leading the way
Rylie 9 Maddison7 with there hair braided .....A view from Chinamans Island looking over the Lake towards the Yacht club One of the many signs on the walk
if you look hard enough there a honey eater in the tree
A Pea hen hurrying to get to his /her mate in the bush.
I did take a photo of a few in the bush but was hard to
make them out on the photo
this is a view nearing the end of our walk you can see the pathway meandering behind the trees.

Hi Jeanette thanks for the pics, its nice to see someone elses walk. I must say Gwen is a lot like Tommy way out in front like that, I even thought she had a stick but on enlarging the pic I could see it was her arm. I'm glad you enjoyed your walk anyway, I bet you needed a cuppa after that.

It looks really pretty there. Especially liked the pea hen photo. Here in Boston it's kinda cold. The usual autumn weather.

Your 'gum tree' looks like our eucalyptus trees we have here, but they were probably originally from your country.

Nice walk, I would have loved to have joined you on it if I wasn't an Ocean away.

Those are beautiful tress and really all the scenery is pretty. [Do they allow trail bikes on those paths? Motorcycles?]
You probably figured out, I've been pretty scarce of late with Mema and all.
I hope Merle keeps on blogging. It is frustrating sometimes, my daughter, Susie, quit. She is a perfectionist and that doesn't rhyme with blogging.
I left a comment tonight, please tell her I really like what she writes. She could slow down as I'm about to and still have enjoyment.

What a wonderful walk. I love the Lake Mulwala area (that is where you were, I hope !!). Seeing your photos makes me yearn to go camping on the Murray again ... it is just gorgeous where you are, I am terribly jealous !! Thanks for sharing.
Have a great week.
Take care, Meow

I have never heard of any of your birds before- like the one with the hen running across the road- a bit like our pheasant over here-lol.
Girls look lovely with their braids.
Bests and keep cool. xx
