Blue Water marina
So…yesterday I went for a beautiful walk.
I saw beautiful trees
and I collected a gorgeous big seed pod, photographed here, tastefully, next to my (size 7) foot. For reference.
and I took a photo of Ken Next Door (SV Alkina) way up his mast.
Today…it rained, and occasionally poured, all day. Ken spent a lot of time up the mast today in the pouring rain. Not so much fun! (No photos of this; I didn’t want to get my phone/camera wet.)
So…this afternoon the rain cleared a bit and Pete and I set off on An Adventure. We walked 10.95 kilometres (17710 steps - I LOVE my step counter app!!) Blue Water marina to Kewarra Beach and then Trinity Beach.
I showed him the landscaping I had seen yesterday, done with much love.
and some beautiful flowering bushes.
Pete Attenborough saw a family of large marsupials. He thinks kangaroos, 5-6’; I think Agile Wallabies but I am more than likely wrong. Loved them regardless
Up and over the hill and along Kewarra Beach, past beautiful glorious houses including that of our friends Rosemary and John.
|Lovely windows in their guest bathroom|
I couldn’t take photos because it was very rainy and my poor phone didn’t want to emerge from its hiding place in my plastic pouch in my golden bumbag…(LOVE my new bumbag…$20 from Typo!!)
We sheltered from a very heavy downpour in a very convenient pavilion. And there we met the most lovely dogs – brown border collies, Zena and Ziggy, totally adoring of and responsive to their hippiechick owner. (And not the least bit interested in us!!)
Then we walked aback along Kewarra Beach, hoping to get to Trinity Beach. I knew there would be a tavern or two and that was my goal! Ten kilometres and maybe a cocktail!
But first we had to negotiate a bushy prickly track
And a very mangrovey creek
And a big high fence leading to The Burbs!!
Eventually we did get to Trinity Beach Tavern, where we had a drink and a trio of chips. And a lovely bus back to Blue Water where Pete and I met a very cheery small ukulele-playing woman called Jan.
And now…couch time!
