S and I like to walk up the hill to visit my parents. It is great exercise plus we tend to get tea and coffee and fed when we arrive (a yummy apple strudel today).
This afternoon we walked up, quite warm in the sunshine but after drinks and cake it had got to sunset before we left. We walked along briskly, noticing how quickly the temperature had dropped and commenting on how different the perspective is from the car trip, or even walking in the other direction. As we walked S suddenly stopped and said "Is that a wombat, or a wombat shaped bush?" Sure enough it was a wombat!
As we walked further along we came across a mob of kangaroos on our path and that is not to mention the myriad of gorgeous birds we saw on our journey.
It was one of those walks that reminds me how privileged we are to live so close to nature. Just a lovely little afternoon.
